Get a piece of history.

It is a beautifully preserved fort that was built to protect the frontier settlements. Kids would really enjoy visiting this place.

We hosted a district convention in San Angelo and held our Saturday night dinner in OQ#8. The Fort staff offered extended hours so our guests - all of whom were either from out of town or out of state - to enjoy tours of the historic landmark. "Wow" and "Impressive" were the words of the day!

I stopped by and found the staff pleasant and willing to be very helpful. The gift shop was charming and the buildings did have a museum setup in the ones open to be toured. The admission price was very reasonable. Don't miss the telephone museum while at the fort. Very impressive!

Sorry folks, nothing to see here. wide open parade ground space with barrack style buildings around the perimeter. There are the remnants of "ruins" and a little museum, but if you are thinking about making a trip to San Angelo just to come here... look elsewhere. Right on the edge of a bad part of town, and honestly just a... More

Stopped by for about an hour. The visitor's center is not too big, but they have an interesting video about the history of the fort. Not all the buildings are open, but the few that are have some nice displays. Admission is reasonable. Worth a stop if in the area.

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

A visit to Fort Concho is a chance to see an original fort built to protect settlers from the Indians in the mid-1800s. The parade grounds and various buildings and museum take you back in time. Outstanding!

From the reviews I had read, we decided we had to stop here even though we were just driving through San Angelo. 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.
