When the U.S. Army returned to this area after the Civil War, conditions proved undesirable at the prewar post, Fort Bliss at Magoffinsville. In 1868 the garrison moved to this location, then part of the Concordia Ranch. The new post was named Camp Concordia. Two barracks and other adobe structures were built. In 1869 the camp was renamed Fort Bliss. Despite poor living conditions it remained active until 1876. Troops were then withdrawn, only to return within a year. This is the third of six sites of U.S. Army posts in the El Paso area.
