about Tesoro Cultural Center & The Fort:
The site features an authentic fort, patterned as a true replica of Bent's famous fur trade fort, built on the banks of the Arkansas River during the 1830s. Visitors can tour the fort (by appointment only) with period-dressed docents, who focus on topics such as the history of the Bent's Old Fort, the fur trade, and the history of Colorado's Native Americans, Hispanics, and early pioneers.
The center also regularly hosts historical re-enactments, festivals, musical performances, and more.
The Tesoro Trade Lodge, housed in a replica of a 19th century military tent and located in the courtyard of The Fort, offers educational books, authentic Native American jewelry, Hispanic art, and fur trade replicas.
