Fort Davis National Historic Site
In 1961, a year before my first National Park job at Carlsbad Caverns, Fort Davis, Texas, was established as a national historic site. Some of my friends and I drove to this site which is located in the Davis Mountains about 100 miles south of Carlsbad. Here is the first of three sets of black and white photographs I took that day which show the ruins of the fort at that time. Check out the pictures of the fort today which show the wonderful job of restoration that has taken place in the last 40 years.
