- FORT CHADBOURNE CEMETERY - Frontier fort was established
in 1852 by elements of 8th Infantry, but experienced chronic water
shortage. Abandoned in 1867 and the troops were transferred to
Fort Concho in San Angelo. For ruins are on private property but
the owner permits nonstop drive-through. Cemetery of Fort Chadbourne
town (now vanished) is beside U.S. 277 about 10 miles north.
Interesting, poignant old markers.
