Ever wonder what life was like in the early days here in Cheyenne?

You can get a glimpse of the past on the plains this week at Fort D. A. Russell Days on F. E. Warren Air Force Base.

From the very first Cheyenne Frontier Days in 1897, when a cannon was fired on Fort D. A. Russell to announce the rodeo, the future air force base has been part of ‘the Daddy of ‘em All.’

Throughout the week, July 20 through 29, the base is open to the public to celebrate America’s military heritage. The main entrance to F. E. Warren is located on the west side of Cheyenne at Randall Avenue and I-25.

The Fort D. A. Russell Days Open House this weekend allows the public a unique opportunity to get an inside look at military life on the high plains. There will be historical military reenactments, period-style dancing, tours of the base’s historic homes and a showcase of modern missile equipment and vehicles.
