About us:
Established in 1867, along the banks of the Concho River, Fort Concho was built to protect frontier settlements, patrol and map the vast West Texas region, and quell hostile threats in the area.

In June 1889, the last soldiers marched away from Fort Concho and the fort was deactivated. After 22 years Fort Concho's role in settling the Texas frontier was over.

Today, Fort Concho National Historic Landmark encompasses most of the former Army post and includes twenty-three original and restored structures. Fort Concho is a historic preservation project and museum which is owned and operated by the City of San Angelo, Texas.
