The Fort Apache Heritage Foundation, Inc., was chartered in 1998 by the White Mountain Apache Tribe to provide assistance in the Tribe’s historic preservation, cultural and language perpetuation, and other heritage efforts.
The Foundation is charged with the preservation, rehabilitation, and adaptive reuse of the Fort Apache/Theodore Roosevelt School National Register Historic District following the transfer of administrative management from the Bureau of Indian Affairs in 2007. The Foundation is an active, growing organization and we welcome partners to assist us in bringing Fort Apache back into the active service of the White Mountain Apache people and our guests from all over the world.

We are happy to assist individuals and groups to explore the region and enjoy their visit.
