(1867-1882)

This plateau above LaPrele Creek and the North Platte River was chosen as an Army post by Major Dye who described it as "...being neither so low as to be seriously affected by the rains or snow; nor so high and unprotected as to suffer from the winter winds." This optimistic view did not stand up during the winter months.
The museum's exhibits, restored buildings, and trails leading to the remains of the Fort, provide a glimpse into Army operations at this remote outpost and into the boom and bust of the post-military town of Fetterman. A cemetery, with gravestones dating back to the late 1800s, is located less than a mile to the east of where you are standing.
