Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site
Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site Review
About 8 miles east of La Junta, Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site painstaking re-creates what life was like in this adobe fort. Founded in 1833 by trader William Bent, the fort anchored the commercially vital Santa Fe Trail, providing both protection and a meeting place for the soldiers, trappers, and traders of the era. The museum's interior reveals daily life at a trading post, providing looks at a smithy, barracks, and more. Guided tours are offered daily during the summer.
