Lying in the shadow of its 11,156-foot namesake, the settlement of
Elk Mountain is a quiet community of cottonwood- lined streets,
picturesque buildings, with world class trout fishing right downtown.
Much of the historical significance of the Elk Mountain area lies in
the development of a transportation network linking the east and
west coasts. The Medicine Bow River crossing was used by the
John C. Fremont expedition of 1843. On August 2nd of that year,
Fremont’s party camped in the proximity of the “Medicine Butte”,
an early name for Elk Mountain. The river would become a major
crossing for immigrants and stage travelers.
Population: 191
Elevation: 7,264 feet

In 1850, the Stansbury expedition, led by famed
mountain man Jim Bridger, crossed the Medicine Bow
farther north seeking a route for wagon travel. Later, in
1856, Lt. F.T. Bryan, discovered regular use of Stansbury’s
route and suggested it be used for the Overland Stage
started by Ben Hollady. By 1862, the operation was
imperiled by constant Indian attacks. Holladay chose to
move the line southward, back to the Medicine Bow River
Crossing, where he built a stage stop. In 1862, Fort Halleck
was built on the Overland Stage route a few miles west of

Elk Mountain to protect travelers passing through this region. The fort was named after
Major-General Henry G. Halleck, a key military aide to President Lincoln. The government
maintained the fort from 1862 to 1866 when it was decommissioned because the Indian threat
was diminishing. The owner of the stage stop found a sufficient volume of trail traffic to
maintain a toll bridge, although eventually stage traffic waned.

Elk Mountain’s first mercantile store was constructed in 1902 using lumber from the Carbon
Timber Company. In 1905 the Elk Mountain Hotel was built by John S. Evans, on the property
previously used by the Overland Stage Station. The building’s architecture is Folk Victorian
style, reminiscent of what was found on the frontier during that time. Next to the Hotel stood
the Garden Spot Pavilion. The Garden Spot was host to such notable entertainers as Louis
Armstrong, Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, and Lawrence Welk. These entertainers inspired
hundreds to “jump on and ride” the Garden Spot’s magical dance floor. The Hotel is listed
on the National Register of Historic Places. The Hotel property served as an important component in the economic and social life of the Elk Mountain community, as the lodging,
mining and livestock industries boomed. The property enjoyed a steady clientele and
became a way-station for entrepreneurs and laborers who traveled here for the timber, mineral
and ranching industries. The luxurious inn still stands where it was first constructed almost
100 years ago and welcomes guests year-around. Sitting as it does along the banks of the
Medicine Bow River, Elk Mountain is a Mecca for trout fisherman from across the country.
Visitors interested in beautiful scenery should take the round-the-mountain drive on Pass
Creek Road as it is an area of stunning vistas teeming with wildlife
