This is the oldest military post that began in 1874 as Fort Concho, a US Army base in the Oklahoma Territory. The pacified Oklahoma of the early 1900s led to the transformation of this fort into a reconstruction station in 1908, and the Cheyenne and Arapaho were moved to ConCHO. This building crosses the state of Oklahoma and is now the site of a state museum, the El Reno Oklahoma Museum of History and Heritage.
