Fort Laramie

United States of America

Fort Laramie National Historic Site was originally established as a private fur trading fort in 1834. Situated in western Wyoming, the site witnessed the entire sweeping saga of America’s western expansion and Indian resistance to encroachment on their territories. Indians, trappers, traders, missionaries, emigrants, gold seekers, soldiers, cowboys, and homesteaders would leave their mark on a place that would become famous in the American West. In 2009 the site was the subject of a digital preservation pilot project between the National Park Service, CyArk, and the University of Colorado Denver.
