Ft. Concho

Old restored Army post, home of the Buffalo Soldiers. Beautiful facility. Numerous activities with period clothing worn. Ease of access, lots of parking.

Mid-afternoon in August isn't the best time for a visit here. The parade ground was crispy, the buildings were hot, and there wasn't much staff in sight (I didn't think I'd have enjoyed a tour from the guy at the desk very much.) Ft. Chadbourne an hour north of town was much more appealing.

I think we went on the hottest day of the year. We still had a good time. The videos were interesting and helped put the things we saw in prospective. We were able to walk around and go into several buildings. Some of the buildings were air conditioned, included a variety of themed buildings such as an interesting Telephone exhibit.... More

I can't honestly tell you how many times I have been to our Fort during the 30 years I have lived here. It is filled with information and history. The fort also hosts a beautiful christmas during the first week in December-it's amazing!

Fort Concho was built to protect the frontier settlement and established in 1867. I went with two small boys on a typical hot summer day in the morning. You will get hot because you walk from building to building but inside most buildings were air conditioned. We went inside the small Visitor's Center where they have a short 8-minute overview,...

Well maintained but not much to see. We did get some books and brochures for san Angelo. The canon display was interesting showing old saddles and how many horses or people it took to pull

Nicely maintained grounds and buildings along with an active living history program make Fort Concho a must for anyone interested in the history of the West. Additionally, being located close to the Concho River and the River Walk, the fort is a nice place to visit for family (including children). Recommend this to anyone wanting to experience frontier history.

We enjoyed touring the Fort with our daughter, son-in-law, and our 2 grandsons. Being a military family, it was intriguing to get a glimpse of what life was like back in the 1800's for military members and their family. Our grandsons, ages 12 years and 2 years, especially enjoyed the fort. They were totally amazed at how the transportation looked,... More

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!
