Fort Valley is a historical suburb of Flagstaff located near Mount Humphries, where the Arizona SnowBowl ski resort is located. An estimated 962 people call it home.
The Fort Valley suburb is located about 7 miles west of Flagstaff along N Fort Valley Road/Highway 180, across the highway from the entrance to the Arizona Snowbowl ski resort. It contains the old Baderville homes, usually located on one acre of land; newer homes farther off the highway, which are usually on larger acreages; and the Wing Mountain Ranch subdivision, which has higher-end homes and, unlike the majority of the homes in Fort Valley, is governed by a homeowner's association.
The homes are served by wells, and some of the wells may need to be supplemented by water delivery.
Spectacular views of the mountains are the norm in Fort Valley, and it is a "feature" of many of the homes there. The most recognized mountain, however, is Mount Humphries, where the Arizona Snowbowl resort is located. N Snowbowl Road, which leads to the resort's entrance, intersects with Hwy 180 in Fort Valley. After turning onto that road it is a mere 6.6 miles to the resort.
Fort Valley residents have easy access to several trails, including forest service trails leading to Wing Mountain.
Southeast on the ~7-mile route to Flagstaff are two museums—the Museum of Northern Arizona and the Pioneer Museum—and the Coconino Center for the Arts, which has a 4,000 square foot gallery featuring diverse exhibitions and a 200-seat theatre offering concerts, performances, films, and other presentations.
The settlement's name comes from a fort that was established in 1882 to defend against hostile Apache tribes in the surrounding country. Also called Fort Moroni and Fort Rickerson, the fort—a Mormon cattle stockade—was never actually used for its original purpose.
The primary reason for the settlement's establishment was logging of the abundant ponderosa pine trees that grow in the area, which is true for the rest of Flagstaff, as well. Wagon trains migrating from the east would sometimes come upon Flagstaff and settle in the Fort Valley area. Many of the old settlements can still be seen today.
Ranching and logging being the primary activities in the area, the land soon became a victim of overgrazing and other environmental concerns. In 1908 Gustaf Adolf Pearson of the forest service arrived, and began to revive the area.
