Fort Fred Steele was established in 1868 as one of a group of military posts placed along the route of the Trans-Continental Railroad to protect and support the railroad construction. Today, except for the Powder Magazine (south of the Railroad tracks), only foundations remain. The buildings are marked with metal signs indicating the original use of the building and the dotted lines on the above map closely follows the original Parade Ground Path. This post did have some unique structures. These include the stone sidewalk, part of which still exists, along Officers Row, on the west side of the post. Another interesting structure is the Stone Corral, much of which still stands. Building number 13 shows evidence of being a military structure and may have been a barracks. Remember! These structures are unsafe, DO NOT ENTER!
