“Fall River Crossing Along The Old Army Iron Bridge -Ft. Laramie, Wyoming”

I have such a thing for old bridges as some of you know from previous posts. Well, above is an old army bridge near Ft. Laramie, Wyoming. This old historic bridge was built in 1875 by the US Army to provide military and immigrant crossings over the North Platte River to the Fort. This bridge was pivotal in providing transportation and trade in the region. It also provided passage to other military outposts, Indian agencies, and the gold fields in the Black Hills region of South Dakota. Without this bridge to link people together at the time, many peace treaties wouldn’t have happened. If you are going through and/or headed to Wyoming for a visit, be sure to make this bridge and the National Ft. Laramie sight a “must see”.
