1856, Camp Verde was established as a military post to suppress Indian attacks on settlers. As suggested by Jefferson Davis, camels were brought to the camp as an experiment in providing transportation of troops and equipment. The experiment was interrupted by various occupations of the fort during the Civil War and ended when US Army abandoned the fort in 1869. Union soldiers were held prisoner by Confederates in 1861 at nearby Prison Canyon Ranch. Gen Robert E. Lee and other notable military leaders visited the Camp and were housed in a cabin at Prison Canyon Ranch. Camp Verde Store built in 1857 served the Camp and area residents through the turn of the century.
A new general store and post office built in 1908 is still in use today.
