Fort Davis

FT. DAVIS, TEXAS GALLERIES

  Fort Davis started as a garrison town that supported the military fort built in 1854 to defend the region. Today, the Fort Davis National Historic Site is one of the best surviving examples of an Indian war’s frontier military post in the Southwest; and the town has become a charming reminder of life in the old west. Several art galleries showcase fine examples of western painting, sculpture, and striking photography by regional artists and locals.

Davis Mountains State Park is just four miles northwest of town and offers an extensive array of hiking trails, campsites, and some of the most scenic views in the region. It’s a great place to experience the area’s natural beauty and landscape.  

Just 17 miles northwest of Fort Davis is the McDonald Observatory, one of the world’s leading centers for astronomical research, teaching and public education. It boasts a cutting-edge Visitors Center and offers daytime, twilight and evening programs. Visit McDonaldObservatory.org for details.
