The Lewiston Claims are located on the south end of the Wind River Range 13 miles east of South Pass in Fremont County, Wyoming. Comprised of 9 different patented claims, the subject property encompasses approximately 149 deeded acres. There are a number of ideal building sites on the property that capture the breathtaking views of the mountains to the west and the willow lined Strawberry Creek that meanders along the property.
Set in an area with a rich history dating back to when the west was being settled in the early 1800ís, the South Pass Historic Mining area rose to fame for the discovery of gold in 1842. The resulting gold rush of 1867 helped settle this part of Wyoming, some 23 years before it became the 44th state. It was in the spring of 1876 when Martin Lewis discovered gold on Strawberry Creek that lead to the development of the Lewiston Claims. A number of prominent historical trails go through the area including the Oregon Trail, California Trail, Pony Express Trail and the Mormon Pioneer Trail.
Today the Lewiston Claims are surrounded by hundreds of thousands of acres of BLM, offering much for those who enjoy the great outdoors. Just above South Pass are thousands of acres of National Forest to explore and recreate in as well. While South Pass might be a ghost of what it used to be, there are great dining and shopping options in Lander, just an hour drive to the north of the property.
