On August 3, 1855 the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints concluded arrangements for the purchase of Fort Bridge from Louis Vasquez, partner of James Bridger, for $3,000. Final payment was made October 18, 1858. A cobblestone wall was erected in
the Fall of 1855, replacing Bridger's stockade. A few
additional log house were built within the fort. The
place was evacuated and burned on approach of
Johnston's army September 27, 1857. A portion of the
wall is here preserved. In 1855 Fort Supply was established
by Brigham Young six miles south where crops
were raised for the emigrants .
