Geronimo's Gravesite

Plains tribes in 1869, Ft. Sill became the home of the U.S. Field Artillery Center and School in 1911.
The Buffalo Soldiers were stationed here in the 1870s and provided major assistance in the construction of the post.

Forty-six of Ft. Sill’s original structures are still in use and in mint condition. The Post Quadrangle features historic homes, museum buildings and the Post Chapel.
While on Post, visit Geronimo’s Grave, the final resting-place of the great Apache warrior.

American Indian notables including Quanah Parker are buried at Chief’s Knoll in the Post Cemetery.
