In 1865 Major Clarence Bennett and volunteers of the 7th Infantry Regiment (7 officers and 464 men) left California for Arizona to subdue hostile Indians hiding in the Verde-Salt River Wilderness. In September, Bennett established Camp Verde west of the Verde River, eight miles above it’s junction with the Salt River.

In October, General Mason designated the site as a permanent post to be named for General Irvin McDowell. He ordered the troops to clear the land and begin construction of the fort. Mason also issued orders for conducting the war against the Yavapais. He directed the troops to scout the area north of the Salt River and east of the Verde until all Apaches were brought into submission. Mason ordered that the troops kill all male hostiles old enough to carry arms until they surrendered, capture all women and children and destroy all villages and possessions including their food supply. To Mason “Apache” was synonymous with “enemy”. Unhappily for the Yavapais, most white men, military and civilian, erroneously called them Apaches, confusing them with the more warlike Indians to the southeast.

During the Geronimo uprisings of 1885 and 1886 small bands of Apaches often escaped from San Carlos. Troops from McDowell scouted for renegades. Occasionally, McDowell detachments participated in expeditions that guarded passes between Arizona and Mexico.

Fort McDowell’s mild winters and its proximity to the Verde and Salt Rivers and the Mazatzal and Superstition Mountains attracted many visitors from the East. By 1889 the post had become a popular resort where visitors could obtain board and room for $16 a month. Hunting rabbits and quail was a favorite sport.

In 1890 Lt. James M. Baldwin, the last of 52 officers commanding McDowell, was relieved of his command and the post was turned over to the Department of the Interior. In 1903 the area was designated as an Indian reservation.

The land that became Fountain Hills started as the P-Bar Ranch, whose more recorded history begins in 1935. The history of legal ownership of the land is very hard to trace prior to that time.  Our wonderful town has grown by leaps and bounds. Our population has grown to an estimated 21,740 in 2002. The 1980 census showed a population of 2,772-quite a growth spurt!
