Camp Warner (2) History
The second Camp Warner was a more permanent post built with logs and room enough for 280 men. General George Crook (Cullum 1573) made it his headquarters for several months during his Indian campaign and his wife joined him there.
Several flat spots and indents from Officer’s Quarters and Enlisted Men’s barrack still remain. The rock floor from the Cavalry Stable is still visible in several areas. Other than that not much remains besides various kinds of surface debris such as square nails and assorted items of that nature.
