A friend of mine took us while visiting so I really didn't know what to expect. If you are into history this is great but I can say from my kids stand point they really weren't impressed. I can say it was kinda Erie to see it in person & I got a very uneasy feeling the minute I walked... More

Geronimo's grave is in the cemetary at Fort Sill. If you are interested in cemeteries, I found this one quite interesting. There are info plagues about the native Americans who lived and worked at Fort Sill. Geronimo was a great leader that is part of every American's history. It only takes a few minutes to stop here and recognize his... More

Geronimo is one of the most famous figures in American History. Many years ago, I had the privilege of visiting his grave. Since my wife and I were traveling through Lawton, we decided to stop and visit the grave site. I live on the Navajo Nation and have done so since 1996. Many Navajos I know respect Geronimo and consider... More

I am not that into history but my husband loves things like this. Interesting to read all the headstones. Takes longer to get there than the actual tour of the site. But I can now say I have been to Geronimo's grave.

When my son was graduating basic training at Fort Sill, I asked him to get the directions to Geronimo's grave. The grave and the rest of the Apache cemetery are fairly remote, but not difficult to find. We visited in July, when the tree shading the site was bright with the scarves people tie there, and move beautifully in the... More

If you are interested in the history of the American West, then this is a great sight to see. The trip will most likely be brief (since it is a grave sight) but this does not diminish its historical significance.

If you are into history, military, or gravesites, this would be a place for you. Buried here are Apache military figures and related family members throughout history. Located on Fort Sill.

Our family decided to head out on a clear winter's day to visit the gravesite of Geronimo. It is not in Comanche, but rather in Lawton. You must enterFort Sill to get there so be sure to have some sort of ID (driver's licence, passport). The guard checked everyone in the car. Ask him for directions if you don't have... More

A great American Indian. Not much to see except the grave site. You can go across the road to the Ft.Sill museum and make the trip worth it.
