The parade ground was the center around which a variety of utilitarian buildings were constructed between 1849 and 1885.Though intended as a center of activities for the post with its parades and drills, Fort Laramie's parade ground was not in constant use. Soldiers were kept busy with a broad array of duties related to the upkeep of the post and security of the region.The parade ground saw two types of formations. Guard mount or changing of the guard, occurred daily at 9:00 a.m. A full dress parade was held once a week on Sunday.
