Fort Douglas

Fort Douglas was an active Army post for more than one and one-quarter centuries beginning in 1862, thus its history goes back to Wild West days.  It has been deactivated, and serves multiple uses now,  many related to the University of Utah.  A number of historic buildings remain, and walking through its streets is a pleasant experience.

Fort property is on the far side of the TRAX station in this view.  This is the first stop inbound on the University Line.
