Crossroads of a Nation Moving West

Fort Laramie was perhaps the single most important location in America's expansion into the west. Founded in 1834 as a trading post, it became a military fort in 1849. Until it closed in 1890, Fort Laramie influenced major events in the history of the Trans-Mississippi West. From the eras of the fur trade, the Oregon Trail and the Indian Wars, the fort served as an American foothold in a rapidly changing west.

We recommend that you begin at the Visitor Center. Follow the paved path to your left. An orientation video, displays, information and bookstore will help you make the most of your visit.
