Established by Jim Bridger in 1843 as an emigrant supply stop on the Oregon trail, it was obtained by the Mormons in the late 1850s, and then became a military outpost in 1858.

This was an unexpected stop – we didn’t know it was there, but decided to pull off the road and visit when we passed it.

They had the whole Williamsburg thing going on with teenage employees reluctantly dressed up in the period-wear. Pretty interesting place that had a museum with lots of info on those who traveled the Oregon Trail.
