Fort Apache on the White Mountain (Fort Apache) 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.
