The Story Behind This Haunted Fort In Wyoming Is Truly Creepy

It seems like hauntings are always tied to history; spirits from the past coming back to visit the inhabitants of their old stomping grounds. Therefore, I guess we really shouldn’t be surprised that this old Fort in Wyoming, which is now a National Historic Site, is thought to be haunted by not one but a whole host of ghosts.
