    Sierra Vista would very likely not be in existence if it was not for Ft Huachuca. “wuachooka”
    During the Indian Wars a camp was established in the Huachuca Mountains with the goal of defending the territory and protecting pioneers heading west as well as the settlers who were living in the area.  It was not a safe place and only the very brave dared attempt to settle there.  This was due in part to the activities of an angry Geronimo whose wife, mother and three young children were murdered by Mexican soldiers in 1858.  This fueled his hatred of all Europeans. 
    In 1882 the camp was re-designated a fort.  After the surrender of Geronimo in 1886, many of the camps and forts were closed but Ft. Huachuca was saved due to problems near the border with renegades, bandits and outlaws.
    The famous Buffalo Soldiers arrived in 1913 and remained there for nearly 20 years.  From that point, Ft. Huachuca was involved in missions in World Wars I and II.  As many as 30,000 men were assigned to the fort.
    Over the years the fort has been used for various military objectives and today it is a major military instillation.  
    The museum building and others surrounding it were built between 1880 and 1905.  The museum building was originally used as a bachelor officer’s quarters. 
    In 1947 after World War II had ended, the base was turned over to Arizona Fish and Game Department and was designated to be used as a buffalo preserve.  The idea was to turn the area into a vacation spot.  However, the Korean War came along and plans quickly changed.

    After the Korean War, the military realized it was becoming dependent on electronic warfare devices so the post became the US Army Electronic Proving Ground.  Today the fort is heavily involved with military intelligence.

    The museum is a truly fascinating place to visit.  As it is housed in a vintage building, the feeling that you are back in time exists from the time you step inside.  Many of the artifacts are arranged in diorama format.  One of the exhibits that is of interest to families is the kitchen.  It appears to be complete but it certainly makes us thankful for what we have today.
