Fort Bowie National Historic Site

Fort Bowie National Historic Site commemorates the bitter conflict between Chiricahua Apaches and the U.S. This 998-acre park, located in the southeast corner of Arizona, includes most of Apache Pass, which separates the Dos Cabezas Mountains on the north from the Chiricahua Mountains to the south. Elevations range from 4,550 to 5,250 feet, the upper elevational limit for the deserts, and a transition zone from grassland to woodland habitat types. Despite a long history of human habitation and disturbances, to natural habitat, the area is one of astounding diversity: some 30 species of reptiles, 65 mammal species and over 150 species of birds are found in this area.

  Fort Bowie National Historic Site is also part of the American Southwest Virtual Museum, a digital repository of photographs, maps, information, and virtual tours.
