Fort Bridger was established by Jim Bridger and Louis Vasquez in 1843 as an emigrant supply stop along the Oregon Trail, it was obtained by the Mormons in the 1850s, it then became a military outpost in 1858.
In spite of temporary times of abandonment during the Civil War and then again during the late 1870s, Fort Bridger remained U.S.
Government property until 1890. After the post was abandoned, many of the buildings were sold at public auction and moved off the fort grounds to become homes, barns, and bunkhouses. For a time, the buildings that remained were allowed to fall into disrepair. After a period of neglect, various groups and individuals took interest in preserving and restoring what remained of Fort Bridger. In 1933 the property was dedicated as a Wyoming Historical Landmark and Museum.... check travelogue for more ;)
