History of Fort Naco,Arizona
is the last of twelve border forts that extended from Brownsville, Texas
to San Diego, California. These forts guarded the U.S.
and Mexico border in the early 1900s. Pancho Villa, Black
Jack Pershing, Geronimo, Charles Young, Victorio, Henry Flipper and the Buffalo Soldiers all roamed the border. These forts
were established to bring order to the U.S.- Mexico border. Columbus, New Mexico,
where Pancho Villa forces attacked in March 1916, was one of these forts.
Naco is the only one still standing, but it needs to be restored as soon as possible. The
fort can be saved if action is taken quickly before the weather can cause further damage. Efforts have
been taken to restore the fort. You can learn more about Fort Naco
