Geronimo was one of the most powerful and widely respected Apache leader. Apache refers to the general term used to describe the tribes of Southwest United States. He was born on June 16, 1829 in Arizpe, Sonora, Mexico, and was a political prisoner, compelled to live in Fort Still. He longed to return to his birthplace, but the American authorities did not let him go back. He died of acute pneumonia at the ripe old age of 79 in Fort Hill, and was subsequently buried there. His wife Zi-yeh and his beloved daughter Eva Geronimo Godeley rest next to him. Visit this grave to pay homage to a great man and experience the awe-inspiring atmosphere.

Geronimo's Grave Reviews & Ratings
The grave is located inside of Fort Sill in Oklahoma. There is an incredible amount of history on Fort Sill. Geronimo's grave is just one of the many graves located in this cemetery. They are in family groups which is very nice. We found it a little hard to find the cemetery since the signs pointing the direction to the cemetery are wrong.
Was a sad place to visit as it's a gravesite with Geronimos headless grave & family members. Good piece of history as our schools don't teach this type of history.
Quiet, secluded area of the base. Cemetery is interesting. Very sobering to see entire families wiped out within just a few years of each other.
A wonderfully kept national treasure
Fort Sill, OK is filled with so much history. I had a really good time.
