We visited for the candlelight tour and Victorian Christmas decorations and had an absolutely delightful time. The rangers, docents and volunteers were warm, knowledgeable and friendly. We will be back - a gem of history.

Lovingly preserved history in the original fort buildings of Fort Verde, now Camp Verde. Native American history and documentation of the way it really was in Arizona during the 1800's. One of the better historical museums I have every witnessed.
