Washakie Station



Read All About It:

The history of Washakie Station, a stage station on the Overland Trail, begins in the early 1860s. Unlike stage stations east of Bridger's Pass, Washakie Station and others west of it were built of native stone quarried locally. Floors and roofs were usually made of poles and dirt, and the buildings usually faced south or east. Portions of a few crumbled walls, consisting of red sandstone slabs of varying sizes, are all that remain of this particular station. Foundation stones of what was probably a corral and hay storage shed are located nearby.
