Description
Bent's Old Fort on the prairies of eastern Colorado was, for a time, the only settlement between MIssouri and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Built by William Bent and his brother, Charles, the fort acted as a trading post with Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians, as a rest stop along the Santa Fe Trail, and an army post for soldiers in the 1830's and 1840's. The original building was constructed in 1833 and burned down in 1849 under suspicious circumstances.
