Arizona Historical Society tour – Great Apache Heritage

Arizona Pathfinders, a nonprofit volunteer group of the Arizona Historical Society, is conducting a two day tour of the Great Apache Heritage Celebrations at Fort Apache on May 8 and 9, 2015. The first day we visit the Besh-Ba-Gowah Archeological Park in Globe, Arizona, then have lunch at DeMarcos Restaurant in Globe. We then travel to Show Low, Arizona, and visit the Heritage Historic Museum. We spend the night at the Hon-Dah Resort Casino and Conference Center on the Mogollon Rim where we will check in and have a buffet dinner. The second day, after a full buffet breakfast, we travel to Fort Apache to view a remarkable event of Apache song and dance competition that draws more than 500 community members each year, plus arts and crafts and other cultural demonstrations. We will have a walking tour of the Fort Apache Historic District, which has twenty seven buildings and covers 288 acres. The oldest structure is General Crook’s cabin. Visit the Theodore Roosevelt School National Historic Landmark and the Fort Apache Museum. All meals are included, except lunch at the celebration where there will be many food vendors to choose from on your own. We will be back at the Arizona Historical Museum around 6:30 p.m.

Cost is $284 for Pathfinder members (double occupancy). Cost is $299 for nonmembers (double occupancy) which includes a one year membership in Pathfinder. A single supplement of $52 will be applied. For further information please contact Arizona Pathfinders at [email protected]
