One of the many trading posts built by
Antoine (Anton French) Robidoux,
First built around 1828 at the juncture of the
Grand (Gunnison) and Uncompahgre Rivers
then a territory of Mexico and Ute Indian country
on the well traveled "Old Spanish Route" that
ended in Taos and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Kit Carson, Robert B. Lee and Joe Meek were
frequent visitors. The fort remained until Sept.
1844, when most of the occupants were killed
in an attack by the Ute Indians. Constructed
at Delta, Colorado in 1990, this living, working
museum is open to the public.
