  • We stopped here and checked out the museums. We bought hard candy and explored the exhibits. We didn't spend too much time, maybe about an hour.  more »

  • Established by Jim Bridger in 1843 as an emigrant supply stop on the Oregon trail, it was obtained by the Mormons in the late 1850s, and then became a military outpost in 1858. They had the whole Williamsburg thing going on with teenage employees reluctantly dressed up in the period-wear. Pretty interesting place that had a museum with lots of info on those who traveled the Oregon Trail.
  • We visited today on a school field trip. The guides and staff we friendly and knowledgeable. The grounds are clean and well maintained. With tons of history and lots of neat things to see, I highly recommend a visit to historic Fort Bridger.
  • Neat site with plenty of information about the Oregon Trail, Lincoln Highway and Mormon Pioneer Trail. Great staff knowledgeable and proud of their community's history. A mountain man is said to arrive regularly to the vistors center exchanging hand made goods for sale!
  • Amazing place with lots to see! So much history packed into one piece of land. Be sure to take a guided tour- they unlock rooms usually closed off to visitors and you get a close-up view of what life would have been like at Fort Bridger when it was an active military post. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Big thanks go out to "The Oregon Trail" game I played as a young'un, without which I probably would have never remembered there was a place called Fort Bridger. 👍🏽
  • History at its best. Premium photo opp. Excellent self paced walking tour. Have a picnic. Let the kids run. Pet friendly, leash required. Parking avail for larger RVs.
