Reconstructed Fort LaramieFort Laramie National Historic Site covers an area of 833 acres (3.37 km2) and protects ruins of the historic American fortress that was originally found here in 1830's. Fort Laramie was founded as Fort William and later became known as Fort John. It was erected on a strategic location at the confluence of the North Platte River and Laramie River, that also gave its modern day name. Fort Laramie was established to protect trade routes from the attacks of Native tribes that harrased fur traders. Later it became an important site as a trading post and diplomatic center for relations with the native tribes. During massive relocation of the European settlers along the Oregon Trail Fort Laramie became an important stop along the way.
