Beginning Saturday, September 12th, outdoor walking tours resume!  Hours for the tours will begin at 9:30 a.m., with the last tour commencing at 1 p.m.  This schedule will remain in effect for every Saturday until further notice.   Guests should gather in front of the museum on the west side of the parade ground.  We ask that guests wear masks and practice social distancing during the tour.  The museum is not open, due to ongoing construction.  Although tours are offered on Saturdays only, the grounds remain open every day.  No charge for tours, but donations are accepted.

Help us preserve and tell the story of a place where the Old West converged with medical science!

The Historic Preservation Society operates two separate facilities, the Museum on site at the historic fort, AND the Santa Clara/Historic Fort Bayard Visitors Center, located in the former National Guard Armory, along US Highway 180, about one and one half miles south of the Fort.

 The Santa Clara/Historic Fort Bayard Visitors Center  is located at 11990 US Hwy 180, 6 miles east of Silver City, on the north side of the highway, in the former National Guard Armory Building.  Due to health orders from the Governor, the Visitors Center remains closed until the Covid19 crisis recedes enough to allow for public visitation.
