July’s Road Trip will be on Friday, July 22 – to Fort Laramie.
Fort Laramie was founded in the 1830s to service the overland fur trade and became a primary stopping point on the Oregon Trail.
It was also a participant in what is called the Great Sioux War of 1876-1877.
The discovery of gold in the Black Hills touched off a period of conflict with the Lakota and Northern Cheyenne. During this period Fort Laramie served as a major staging point for supplies and U.S. Army troops.
We are fortunate to live so close to this National Historic Site that draws thousands of visitors every year from around the country and around the world.
Meet at the Center at 9AM.
The Center is paying for both your entrance to the Fort, and for lunch at the American Grill.
