North of town off Ariz. 89, on the grounds of what is now a Veterans Affairs hospital, this small museum tells the history of Fort Whipple, which was active from 1863 to 1922. You can learn about activities of the Buffalo Soldiers in the state; there’s even a cameo from legendary NY Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia. Many stately officers’ homes still stand on the grounds. The museum is overseen by the Sharlot Hall Museum.
