"Chief Trumpeter" erected in 1991.
First settled about 300 A.D. by the Hohokam people (pit house site east of park, and another west of Craycroft). The fort was moved out to this location in 1873 for grazing areas for the horses. The fort was the supply base for the military posts in Southern Arizona during the wars against the Apaches. It was established to fight Geronimo, and after his surrender in 1886, there was no need for the fort. It closed in 1891. Later the village of El Fuente (the fort) was established just east of this location on Fort Lowell Road.
