The fort is well taken care of and has many of the building still standing if not all of them. Events are held there besides being a historic sight which in turn helps to cover cost of the fort. There is much history to read about as well as to see walking the well kept grounds. I was there for... More

We have visited several forts in Texas, but Fort Concho is the best preserved of the bunch. We were there on a Sunday and there was only one guided tour at 2:30, so we waited for that and it was so worth it. The docent was very good. Cost isn't much of a factor because it's only $5 for adults... More

If you like history then you will love ft concho. Christmas at Fort xoxo is also a blast. Many vendor selling home made goods, fresh rootbeer, kettle corn and a pancake breakfast. Well worth the visit.

When you drive up to Fort Concho, you are almost shocked to see how well preserved the old Fort has been maintained. The width of the central parade ground is about 100 yards and looks to be about a quarter mile long, with original buildings lining the sides and the back. Only one spot on one side has ruins where... More

This is one of the best restored frontier forts in all of Texas. There is a small visitor center with books and pamphlets explaining the importance of this fort to the development of the West. Attached to this visitors center is a museum showing the life style of the soldiers who lived here. The grounds are a center for living... More

For a European, forts in Texas are not quite what you have in mind - no castles or fortifications or anything, but this is a beautifully preserved for straight out of the Old West. The buildings are all perfectly intact and the interiors are carefully re-created. Staff on hand are incredibly knowledgeable and happy to discuss all aspects of life... More

An enjoyable way to spend a part of your day in San Angelo is to go to Fort Concho. You can get a tour by a docent or just do a self-guided tour. It's been carefully recreated. An adventure you'll remember.
