Explore Fort Davis, Texas, in an RVshare RV Rental

The first settlement in the Fort Davis area was a Native American village that early explorers called Painted Comanche Camp. It was named after United States Secretary of War Jefferson Davis. The United States military constructed Fort Davis in 1854 following orders from General Persifor F. Smith. He personally selected the site during a multi-day journey because he and his traveling companion, Lieutenant W.H.C. Whiting, found a mountain pass and a stream to provide water. Soldiers established the fort to protect travelers using the San Antonio-El Paso Road as they headed west to seek gold in California. It was one of the largest forts on the frontier. You can learn more about this fort from 1854 until the start of the Civil War in 1861 by visiting Fort Davis National Historic Site. 

Within a year of the fort being established, Henry Skillman and George Giddings agreed to operate the mail route from San Antonio to El Paso. Almost simultaneously, a stagecoach route through the area was established along with the town of La Limpia Station because stagecoach drivers needed a place to get a fresh team of horses. The community was about a mile from the Army fort. Indian raids were a frequent problem, and when federal troops arrived in the area during the Civil War, they found the community had been destroyed. 

Following the Civil War, the military began to operate Fort Davis again. They employed over 200 civilians to help build new structures and repair what was left. This second attempt was halted in 1869 until Lieutenant Colonel William R. Shafter, better known as Pecos Bill, took command of the fort in 1871. You can learn more about the early settlers in Fort Davis by visiting the Old Overland Trail Museum. 

William Johnson McDonald was a wealthy banker who lived in Paris, Texas. Upon his death on February 6, 1926, he left behind over $1 million to the University of Texas to establish an observatory at Fort Davis. He never discussed the idea with university officials, and McDonald's heirs were unhappy about the gift and took the university to court five times, saying he was not of sound mind. Numerous towns vied for the right to host the observatory. Still, University of Texas President Harry Benedict announced that the university was putting the funds in the bank for at least 10 years. Meanwhile, officials at the University of Chicago announced that they wanted a southern United States observatory but did not have the funds during the Great Depression to build one. The two schools worked together, and an announcement was made in 1932. It was the first time that two schools shared a large-scale research program. Mount Locke was finally selected as the site, and many found work during the Great Depression by constructing what became the McDonald Observatory, which you will want to visit during your stay in Fort Davis.

 Stop at the Jeff Davis Courthouse to see the small statue of Sergeant Manuel Gonzales. During World War I, Gonzales was referred to as a "One Man Army" for destroying four machine gun nests, a mortar squad, and one 88-millimeter machine gun, although he was wounded at the time. The statue depicts the soldier carrying an American flag. Later, he also knocked out a Mark IV tank with a bazooka. When the Fort Davis Chamber of Commerce installed the statue, they noted it was essential to recognize the role of Hispanic soldiers during World War I.
