Fort Vasquez Museum

Fort Vasquez Museum

This is the site of an 1835 fur-trading fort, following the paths of founders Louis Vasquez and Andrew Sublette. The traders employed many of their mountain-man friends, including Baptiste Charbonneau and Jim Beckwourth, at this adobe outpost on the South Platte River.
