Antelope Creek Crossing - Bozeman Trail



Read All About It:

Also known as the Spring Draw Segment, the Antelope Creek Crossing is a heavily rutted segment of the Bozeman Trail that runs down a hillslope to Antelope Creek, later an important stage stop. A party of emigrant travelers accompanying 1866 diarist Ellen Fletcher camped along a stream course bisecting this segment of the trail. Stage coach operations required the Rock Creek Stage Line to locate a station on Antelope Creek in 1877. The stage station offered good watering and forage and featured a blacksmith shop.
