Fort Ruby Project
This project consists of 11 interpretive panels distributed along a walking trail at the Fort Ruby Historical Site. The panels present the history of Fort Ruby, the details uncovered by several years of PIT archaeological excavation, and describe restoration and reconstruction work at the site. Panels also explain the role of Ruby Valley in Western Shoshone life and culture, and tell the story of the Treaty of Ruby Valley, signed at the fort in 1863. The interpretive project is funded by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Humboldt Toiyabe National Forest.
