I have always loved to visit old forts, and was really looking forward to taking the time to tour this one. Encountered some problems right off the bat. First, there didn't seem to be any parking available on the same side of the street, so we would have had to cross a busy street, even though there is a traffic... More

When we pulled up, we weren't sure we were in the right place as that side of town seemed "abandoned" and desolate and we couldn't see anyone there. We went ahead and went into the visitor's center, paid... More

My wife and I attended a family wedding at Fort Concho. The wedding was set up outside and was set up nicely. We also went to the reception that was held in the master's quarters. Both of the settings were very nice.

Excellent historical site for history buffs. Excellent restoration. Fun re-enactment and special interest exhibits during Christmas at Fort Concho in December. Interesting museum. You can check their web site for other special events.

Very well-preserved historical site. Enjoyed the self-guided tour. Added bonus was the Telephone museum which was located in one of the Officer's Quarter buildings.

Visited over Spring Break 2015 with two older boys. The fort was big and open, not too museum-y for us. Great self tour. The man at the front desk was very helpful too. Be sure to stop here, it's worth the visit!

would recommend to stop by and see if you like American history. Take the time to soak in the history that took place here a lot of neat things to look at and take inn.

One of the best historical sites in San Angelo honoring the Buffalo Soldiers. Many fun events during the year including the Old Ft. Concho Days and the semi-annual Lions Clubs Pancake Breakfast in April and December.
