Fort Union National Monument invites you to join our annual First Fort and Arsenal Tours on September 17.The First Fort and Arsenal site are open to the public only once a year, so visitors can have an opportunity to discover the origins of Fort Union, and the Arsenal that supplied the army in the Southwest.Both were critical in the establishment of the United States in the Southwest as conflicts escalated during the "Indian Wars" in the second half of the 19th Century.
Join a ranger for guided programs at 9:00 am, 10:30 am, 12:15 pm, and 2:00 pm. Visitors and park staff will meet at the Visitor Center 15 minutes prior to the program time, then caravan out to the First Fort site. This program is brought to you in partnership with the Fort Union Ranch. Visitors should wear sturdy walking shoes and a hat, as well as bring sunblock, snacks and water.
