Old Post Cemetery
- Fort Huachuca
Sierra Vista, AZ
Before the end of the Post's first year in 1877, the 6th Cavalry troopers suffered their first casualty and established the need for memorial grounds. The Old Post Cemetery is an emotional "read" for devotees of military history where you'll find the final resting place of many historic figures.
You'll also find a lone headstone with the inscription, "The Unknowns" which represents the graves of many who lost their lives in the wilderness beyond the Fort's gates. Allow 30 minutes.
From the Fort Huachuca's main gate, follow Squier Ave. to Winrow; left onto Mizner; right onto Grierson; right onto Hungerford; left onto Christy; follow signs to the Old Post Cemetery.
Celebrate Cochise County's unique heritage and culture throughout the year.Upcoming Events Calendar
