The Hon-Dah Conference Center, the site of the 2001 Arizona History Convention, is located on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation, home of the White Mountain Apache Tribe. Convention attendees, among other things, had the opportunity to visit Historic Fort Apache. The site was originally used as an Army outpost in 1870. Fort Apache played a major role during the Apache Campaign of the 1880s. Abandoned by the Army in 1922, the fort was used as an Indian boarding school. Several of the original buildings are still standing. Fort Apache Historic Park is maintained by the White Mountain Apache Tribe.
