Seasonal Hour Change Begins at Fort Laramie National Historic Site

Monday, August 26, 2019

Beginning September 3, 2019, Fort Laramie National Historic Site’s Visitor Center will change to fall/winter season hours. “The golden hue of autumn light, long shadows, and the rustling of leaves provide for a unique experience here at the Fort” states Superintendent Mark Davison, “it’s a wonderful time of year to visit.”  The Visitor Center will be open from 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.; the park’s historic grounds will remain open from sunrise to sunset each day. The fall/winter seasonal hours of operation will continue through Memorial Day weekend 2020. Labor Day marks the end of a successful summer season at Fort Laramie National Historic Site for 2018. Highlights of the summer abound. 

This year’s activities began in April with the annual pilgrimage of Wyoming 4th graders to the Fort for education programs that highlight a curriculum in Wyoming History. Activities continued throughout the summer as a full range of interpretive programs was offered to visitors from around the world. Preservation projects at the Fort progressed in a very busy season and are scheduled to be completed later this year. As the summer season comes to a close, the Fort takes pride that so many visitors were able to make life-long connections to the Fort’s natural and cultural resources.
