History:

Fort Davis was used as a Confederate fort in 1861 during the Civil War. During this time, a woman named Alice Walpole stopped by the area to search for roses along Limpia Creek when she was abducted by members of the Apache tribe. Though her body was never found, her spirit began to appear in the area, indicating she had been killed.

Most of her appearances take place outside of the quarters where women did their needlework. Whenever she appears, the smell of roses ensues. White roses have also been known to grow out-of-season within the compound.
