    In addition to Fort Bayard there is the Fort Bayard National Cemetery near the hospital. It was designated as a "National Cemetery" in 1973.

    On the cemetery grounds is a nice Memorial to those who gave their lives serving their country.

    Fort Bayard was active from 1866 to 1900. It was one of several forts activated along the Apache frontier. It was home to Company B of the 125th Infantry, which was comprised of African-American "Buffalo Soldiers". Lieutenant John J. Pershing was stationed here too. The fort was deactivated in 1900. It later served as a military hospital and is now the Fort Bayard Medical Center specializing in Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol Abuse Treatment.
