About Our Site - Fort Fred Steele


This frontier Army post that served as a hub for both the military and Wyoming’s lumber and livestock industries, is located just off I-80 at Exit 228. This frontier Army post has a fascinating history interlacing transportation with the military and the growth of the lumber and livestock industries in Wyoming. Fort Fred Steele State Historic Site is administered by the Division of State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails, Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources.

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.
