Witness History Being Made at Fort Laramie
Monday, August 07, 2017
Fort Laramie was originally established as a private fur trading post in 1834. Later it became an important military post that has been preserved to tell the tale of westward expansion and Indian resistance. The grounds and historic structures of the National Historic Site are open for visitation 365 days a year.
Since Fort Laramie is one of few National Parks in the path of the total solar eclipse that happens on August 21, the park service is planning special programming to coincide with this exciting celestial occurrence.
Beginning on August 18, the fort will feature entertainment, music and living history events.
