Virginia Dale is just a spot on the map today. A spot with an intriguing name and colorful history. Driving from Fort Collins to Laramie on US highway 287, you can see only a little white church on your left, then a closed cafe on your right and little bit farther an old log school. Established in 1862, Virginia Dale was one of the most noted localities in the Western United States in the late 1800's due to the Stage Station built on the Overland Trail. The hand-hewn log building of the Station is still standing about a mile east from the highway.
