Fort Apache on the White Mountain Apache Indian Reservation. Not far from Whiteriver, the fort was originally established to combat Coyotero Apache Indian raids on settlers. It was one of a number of operating bases for GEN George Crook during the Apache Wars. In 1923 the site became the home of the Bureau of Indian Affairs’ Theodore Roosevelt Indian Boarding School, a function it still serves today.
