Welcome to the 'Old Fort' at Fort Lewis College

The original site of Fort Lewis College, a liberal arts college in Durango, CO began 16 miles southwest of its present location in 1880.  

Historical resources will walk you through the 20th and 21st centuries as 6,279 acres on the LaPlata river served as a Military fort, Indian school, High school, Two-year college , a Colorado State University Agricultural Experiment Station (San Juan Basin Research Center) and always an educational and community resource.
