The Ferry Office at Fort Steele. Part of this log building dates back to the Wild Horse Creek Gold Rush of 1864-66. Built by John Galbraith and used first as the Ferry Office, it later served as Post Office and residence. John Galbraith operated the ferry from 1864 until 1870. Robert Galbraith then took over and operated it until the first bridge was built in 1888.
