“learn about the Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes”
Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site features a reconstructed 1840s adobe fur trading post on the mountain branch of the Santa Fe Trail where traders, trappers, travelers, and the Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes came together in peaceful terms for trade. Today, living historians recreate the sights, sounds, and smells of the past with guided tours, demonstrations and special events.
pretty lame but if you are passing by go for it
This is a trading post not a fort. Got a really good tour from one of the reenactors. Fascinating descriptions of the communities in and around the post.
Nice place to visit with the family on our way out West. National historic site/museum. Great with kids! Very hot in summer wear a hat!
We had a blast here! This is one of the most detailed fort restorations we have been to! It was completely rebuilt in the 1970's with intention of opening it as a National Park. Don't miss the introductory video. Every room has been recreated with an astonishing amount of detail. We stayed about 3 hours! Great history that ties in beautifully other National Parks in the area.
