A View into the Past

Today many of the foundations are visible but very few structures are intact. Fort Steele State Historic Site offers an excellent opportunity for the preservation and interpretation of Wyoming’s diverse cultural heritage. Although the number of structures has declined over the years what remains standing is living testimony to the flourishing and subsequent passing of several frontiers.
