The exterior is overgrown and the door is hard to find. By the look of things, you may wonder if this is the kind of place you’ll need a secret handshake to enter. What is this place exactly? It’s Pete’s Roc n Rye Club in Evanston. For our final stop on the Lincoln Highway, producer Erin Dorbin made it past the entrance and sent us this postcard.</p> Fri, 20 Dec 2013 12:00:00 +0000 Erin Dorbin 51551 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org What Happens At Pete's Roc N Rye Club Stays At Pete's Roc N Rye Club Fort Bridger’s History - 30 Miles East of Evanston http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/fort-bridger-s-history-30-miles-east-evanston <p>By 1840, the Fur Trade Era, with its keen competition for beaver pelts, its raucous reputation for rendezvous, and its solid association with all that was wild and untamed in the Rocky Mountain West, was drawing its last breath. Mountain men who had survived the rigors of the wilderness were forced to seek new methods of employment. Two of those men, Jim Bridger and Louis Vasquez, teamed up to operate a trading post in order to provide much needed services for the rapidly increasing number of settlers passing through on the way to their promised lands.

It&rsquo;s a well-traveled route, going all the way back to the 1860&rsquo;s when travelers gravitated toward the safer southern portion of our state and made Evanston a &ldquo;destination.&rdquo;&nbsp; Today Evanston remains a destination, but for much more than just a convenient stop.&nbsp; It&rsquo;s a city of historic and cultural wealth, and at the intersection of Wyoming and Utah culture.
