Fort Whipple Museum

April 23 @ 12:47 am

Fort Whipple served as a tactical base for the U.S. Army during the Indian Wars of 1864 to 1886, where it became one of the key centers for military presence in the Arizona Territory.  Today the fort is on the grounds of the Bob Stump Veterans Affairs Medical Center, where the Fort Whipple Museum serves as a reminder of the wild, wild West, and as a chronicler of days past to modern medical facility.  If you are an historic building enthusiast, you will enjoy touring the vintage 1909 military officer’s quarters for its architectural interest. If you are piqued by the history of military medicine, the Museum’s exhibits feature medical instruments of the late-1800s, and the treatment programs of World War I veterans suffering from tuberculosis or respiratory recovery from mustard and chlorine gas warfare.
