San Angelo: Fort Concho National Historic Landmark

Established in 1867 and closed in 1889, Fort Concho belonged to the chain of frontier posts used by the Buffalo Soldiers during the Indian Wars.  All four regiments of Buffalo Soldiers (the 9th and 10th U.S. Infantry) served at Fort Concho during its active use as a military facility.  It remains one of the best preserved frontier forts in Texas, with 23 structures on the grounds, including a museum and living history exhibit buildings.  Fort Concho offers child friendly events throughout the summer; families on vacation are encouraged to check the calendar of events.
