Crossing Ft. Supply - Ft. Reno Military Road

In 1870 a supply road was established between Ft. Supply and the Cheyenne-Arapaho agency in Darlington, O.T. The road (and telegraph line) was built as an extension of the Ft. Dodge (KS) - Ft. Supply trail and extended to Ft. Reno in 1875. In constant use by the army, indians and traders, this artery played a prominent part in the history of Oklahoma before the coming of the railroads.
