Bill and Carol Loyer are interviewed by their daughter Anne Brande. Anne asks her parents about growing up in the west, their history, and the many people they knew during their life at Virginia Dale Stage Station.
Listen to a bit of Virginia Dale history on the Wyoming Public Media Wyoming Stories link.
The Virginia Dale stage station, made of hand-hewn logs, is among the most important structures in Larimer County dating back to 1862 when the Overland Stage Company relocated its line from central Wyoming to Colorado. It served as “home” station where passengers could stop, rest and get a meal. It is the only one left in the United States in its original condition on its original site.
