South Pass City, Wyoming




The pass is at the south end of the Wind River range. The Oregon Trail passed throught this area.



Many of the buildings are restored. In another portion of town people still live. This Mercantile is still open with goods for sale.






 


This house was built partially into the hill








An old mine above the town.













I found it interesting that Wyoming was such an early proponent of suffrage and women's rights.




Printing press in the newspaper office.





Livery stable.
