Views of Fort Davis National Historic Site
National Park Service website for Fort Davis National Historic Site, "Fort Davis is one of the best surviving examples of an Indian Wars' frontier military post in the Southwest. From 1854 to 1891, Fort Davis was strategically located to protect emigrants, mail coaches, and freight wagons on the Trans-Pecos portion of the San Antonio-El Paso Road and on the Chihuahua Trail."
We think it takes zero imagination to put yourself back to that time as you walk the parade grounds and explore the fort's buildings. It remains a must-see destination for visitors to the small community of Fort Davis.
