Visit fort free during 47th Annual Fort Verde Days

Again this year, there is free entrance to the fort's museum on Saturday. This is a great opportunity if you have never seen what's inside the historic museum with its military artifacts and four original adobe fort buildings. You’ll hear more about 1860-1880s living — the type of food the military and their families ate, the clothes they wore, the entertainment they enjoyed and the type of equipment they used.
