Fort Grant and Museum
Fort Grant was home to the Camp Grant Massacre, a killing of 144 Native Americans who had surrendered. It was also an army post that was later transformed into a state prison. It was built in 1860 at the junction of Aravaipa Creek and the San Pedro River, which was originally known as Fort Breckinridge (1860 to 1866), then Camp Grant (1862 to 1872).
