Fort Stanton Historic Site

Fort Stanton Digital Archive Project

In collaboration with Fort Stanton, Inc., New Mexico Historic Sites is excited to announce a new digital initiative aimed at capturing memories and stories from Fort Stanton's past.

Fort Stanton has served many purposes since its establishment in 1855 but one common theme that defines this special place is its role as a community. We invite those that have lived at, worked at, or visited Fort Stanton  to share their stories and images in an attempt to better understand the impact that the site has had on the history of New Mexico and beyond.
