DescriptionFort Verde State Historic Park is the best preserved example of an Indian Wars period fort in Arizona. Spanning from 1865 through 1890 Camp Lincoln, Camp Verde and finally Fort Verde were home to officers, doctors, families, enlisted men, and scouts. Fort Verde was the primary base for General George Crook’s U.S. Army scouts and soldiers.
Today visitors can experience three historic house museums, Commanding Officer’s Quarters, Bachelors' Quarters and Doctor’s Quarters on Officer's row, all furnished in the 1880s period. (These buildings are all listed on the National and State Register of Historic Places due to their unique architectural and historic significance.) In the former Administration building there are interpretive exhibits with period artifacts on military life, Indian Scouts and Indian Wars history.
