Built in 1854 by the US Army to protect emigrants, freighters, mail coaches and travelers on the San-Antonia-El Paso Road and Chihuahua Trail from being attacked by Comanches and later, Apaches, this is one of the best-preserved examples of 19th-century frontier forts. There are interpretive displays, museum and book shop and the opportunity to experience the daily routine of a soldier replete with bugle calls and an 1875 dress retreat parade. There is a small fee per person to enter and children under 15 are free.
