Fort Verde State Historic Park

Step into the past with a self-guided walking tour of Fort Verde State Historic Park. Fort Verde served as a U.S. Army fort from 1865-1890, during the Indian Wars. Four of the original buildings still stand: the fort's Administration building now contains the park visitor center and museum, while the three buildings along "Officers' Row" are restored with 1880's furnishings.
