Site of the Wagon Box Fight

Site of the Wagon Box Fight

A stone monument erected in 1936 by the Civilian Conservation Corps at the site of the Wagon Box Fight lies on state land on the Wagon Box Road south of Story, Wyoming and about three miles northwest of Fort Phil Kearny. Also at the site is a recent reconstruction of the wagon-box corral. 

From Interstate 90, take Exit 44 and follow signs. This is a satellite site of Fort Phil Kearny, and it and the Fetterman Battlefield are both within five miles of the fort visitor center. The grounds are open year-round as weather permits.
