Newspapers of Uinta County, Wyoming

After the tragic end of the Frontier Index at Bear Town in 1868 no attempt was made to print a paper in the new county of Uinta until 1871, when a man named W. L.

James Bridger and His Post

Fort Bridger takes its name from one of the most famous scouts of the West. James Bridger was born in Richmond, Virginia, March 17, 1804.
