Douglas, Wyoming

 

Douglas, Wyoming, in the 1920's

 

Douglas was officially founded in 1886 when the Wyoming Central Railway (later the Chicago and North Western Transportation Company) established a railway station; however, the settlement had been in existence since 1867 when Fort Fetterman was built and was first known as “Tent City”[7] before it was officially named "Douglas", after Senator Stephen A. Douglas.

 

 It served as a supply point, warehousing and retail, for surrounding cattle ranches, as well as servicing railway crews, cowboys and the troops of the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Fetterman.

Douglas was the home of a World War II internment camp which housed Italian and German prisoners.
