Bent's Old Fort - Tools
« on: February 05, 2021, 10:32:53 PM »
Recently we visited Bent's Old Fort. It is a reconstructed 1840s Fort and fur trading post. You can find more information here: https://www.nps.gov/beol/index.htm

They also had a reconstructed forge and wood shop, and I took some pictures of the tools they have on display. I figured you folks would enjoy seeing them.  :cheers:
I am not sure if all of them are originals or if everything is reconstructed, but I still found it interesting to see what tools they had available.

Enjoy  :hatsoff:


First, pictures of the outside and inside of the Fort:

Example of one of the larger rooms. Most of the rooms were either common rooms or small apartments for guests with more money.

Thanks for sharing.

I grew up near a fort that was similarly done.  I enjoyed going to see the people doing things like they would back in the time and the reenactments that they would have.
