On a hill overlooking the ranch and the route from Mexico the United State established a military outpost in 1911, during the beginning of civil unrest in Mexico. The outpost was manned until 1923. If you go up the steps to the top of the hill you can see the remains of the fort.

Address: 6153 Geronimo Trail, Douglas, Arizona 85608
Directions: About 15 miles East of Douglas. Go East on 15th Street until it turns into Geronimo Trail. Geronimo Trail is a dirt road but is fairly well maintained.
