Fort Laramie National Historic Site

The Rustic Hotel opened in 1876. During that year it probably provided the best accommodations for travelers between Cheyenne and the Black Hills. It also served as a station for the Cheyenne-Black Hills Stage and Express Line. By 1883, when this photograph was taken, one lady found "horrid little bugs" in the sheets. Three years later the stage station corrals were polluting the water supply and had to be removed.
