We have been to Ft. Concho several times over the years and leave with more knowledge and have a fun experience . It is also a great place for a school program, a reunion, wedding or a special luncheon. This summer we had the privilege to help serve lunch for the Kids Eat Free program in Officers Quarters #8.

This is a fun place to visit and learn about the 19th century buffalo soldiers and military of those days. Great care has been taken to restore the buildings to as close their original state. It is a large complex and be prepared to walk if you want a good visit and taken in some history. And you get to... More

Respecting the history of Fort Concho including the heroic Buffalo Soldiers - love it! My mom grew up across the street from the museum. We played in the attics there. I hope it is well supported.

The Fort was very interesting and our tour guide was excellent. It was a very hot day but he took us around the Fort on a 1-1 1/2 hour journey and he was full of anecdotes and local stories. Well worth a visit- especially if you have an interest in the Buffalo Soldiers.

We were hesitant to go to Fort Concho, but this is so different than other historic forts we've been to. The volunteers were incredibly knowledgable and great with kids. The restoration of the buildings is what we were most impressed with - such an accurate depiction of life long ago at the fort. We highly recommend a trip to Fort... More

My children love to go visit the old fort. Anytime we are in San Angelo the request pour in for us to go visit. We suggest visiting the fort for their annual Christmas on the Concho. Great big fort in a great little town.

Fort Concho is a National Historic Landmark located in the city of San Angelo,Texas. I live in the area and enjoy the sights and sounds of locals dressing in realistic dress as soldiers & as the citizens who were around at the time, making it feel realistic. I enjoyed walking through seeing and imaging how things must have been then.... More

Through out the year there are many different events planned at Ft. Concho. Christmas at Old Fort Concho is one of the best times to visit. People from all over the world attend this awesome weekend event. The buildings have been fabulously re-done, and decorated for the season, with local vendors selling their wares, many home-made. The Christoval Monks have... More

The fort is located in a nice spot...but much of the surrounding area looks pretty run down and dead. The buildings area in good shape but not particularly interesting from an architectural point of view. Some of the displays were interesting, some less so. Still, we had an enjoyable morning...(1 or 2 hours).

A tale of three forts. This review is a comparison of the Presidio of San Sabá in Menard, Fort McKavett and Fort Concho in San Angelo. The forts are nearby and played various roles during their usage. There is not much to see at San Saba. Parts of the defensive walls and some of the old buildings remain. Boards around... More
