Bent's Old Fort: 29 June 2008

Just outside of La Junta is the totally reconstructed, but accurate, Bents Old Fort. It is on the old Santa Fe Trail at the former Mexico-US border (Arkansas River). Lots of good history here. At one time this was a very important place on the frontier.

For more information see the Bent's Old Fort National Historic Site webpage.
