Fort Bridger Guard House and Barracks, Fort Bridger, Wyoming

This image shows how the Fort Bridger site, abandoned in 1890, had been restored after being acquired as a historic site in the 1930s. The two main buildings visible, the guard house on the right and Barracks on the left, were restored from the original structures. Many other structures were demolished or moved to other locations for use by people in the area.

The location is now a fairly extensive historic area, with a couple of dozen buildings in various states of restoration, and active archaeological efforts underway to find other buried structures and buildings from the earliest history of the site, dating back to the 1830s.
