Buford
Pop. 2 Elev. 8,000

This one-time railroad station, established in 1867, was named after General John Buford, who was in charge at nearby Ft. Sanders in 1866. The post office remains, and Buford marks the halfway point between Laramie and Cheyenne. Keep your eyes open for the Tree in the Rock Monument, a marvel of nature just to the east of Buford.
