Frontier Forts

Bent’s Old Fort, CO

Bent’s Old Fort is one of my favorite historical sites. It is in a pretty out-of-the-way place in Colorado but well worth the visit.  I appreciate that it was not a military fort but a commercial one. They say that the fort in the mini-serious “Centennial” was based on it. The restoration is impeccable. It feels like it is a working fort even today.  Forts like this one were very critical in the formation of what we know as America today.
