|As it is now, restored for the most part|
fur traders, soldiers and cowboys, held cards close to their vest,
the fort thrived and teemed with people from all walks of life;
but, back then, there was no place for a soldiers wife.
Built in 1834 as a private fur company,
it's location was important, so a fort it came to be,
now peace has been restored, the danger is in the cars,
it's nice to know we have a place like this, to come and see the stars.
