Fort Apache Historic Park (Tł’óghagai in Apache) is a tribal historic park of the White Mountain Apache, located at the former site of Fort Apache in the Fort Apache Indian Reservation. The park interprets the rich and troubled history of relations between the Apache and other Native American tribes at the fort, which was converted into a Bureau of Indian Affairs boarding school after its military use ended. The park, which covers 288 acres (117 ha) of the former fort and school, as well as a nearby military cemetery, form the National Historic Landmark Fort Apache and Theodore Roosevelt School historic district.

  • For a National Historic Site it is being used by the White Mountain Apache Tribe for offices, private residences and a school. There is much potential for it's historical significance but it's not being realized. Thought it would be akin to Fort Laramie in Wyoming. Not even close. The site doesn't depict much Native American history, nor does it reflect the settling of the west. It could be a great learning opportunity for all cultures, but instead is just another group of buildings that don't tell a story at all.
  • Raining so we did not get out of our truck. Looks like a awesome place.
