Ft Lowell Museum
Fort Lowell was a United States Army post active from 1873 to 1891. It featured large parade grounds, officers’ quarters, a commissary, corrals, and quarters for enlisted men as well as for married non-commissioned officers. The most prominent building on post was the hospital, the adobe remnants of which still stand under a protective structure. A lane lined with cottonwood trees, aptly named Cottonwood Lane, graced the area in front of the officers’ houses. The fort lay in ruins for many years. Pima County eventually converted the bulk of the former post into Old Fort Lowell Park, which features ball fields, tennis and racquetball courts, a large public swimming pool, and the Fort Lowell Museum. Museum exhibits focus on military life on the Arizona frontier.
