Not really a fort, but a private trading post on the early frontier, Bent's Old Fort traded with the Cheyenne, Kiowa, and other southern plains tribes. During the 1830s, this southeastern Colorado post bustled with mountain men, buffalo hunters, and Plains Indians eager to trade for supplies and other goods. Bent's Old Fort, and the people who established and ran it, set the stage for the economic development of the West. ^~Author: Mark L.
