Fort Sanders Monument
About 2 miles south of Laramie on Hwy. 287

The first army outpost established in the Laramie area by General Dodge, Fort Sanders provided protection for railroad workers during the late 1860s. Although most of the fort has long since been overrun by the construction of the highway and housing developments, you can still find the monument and a couple of old buildings. One of the buildings was moved to LaBonte Park in Laramie, on 9th and Harney, where it serves as a community center for arts and crafts.
