    The Don King Museum is located right off the Rope Shop in Sheridan, Wyoming, with more than 30 years of western and cowboy memorabilia collecting from around the world. With hundreds of saddles lining the walls of the establishment, the museum contains many marvelous relics of days gone by; including Indian artifacts, guns, original artworks, coaches, wagons and western tack. Don King started making saddles in 1946, and eventually opened his own King's Saddlery. His earnest attention to detail and outstanding skills would soon earn him the PRCA World Championship Saddle contract for 6 years. A number of these wonderful saddles can be viewed at the National Cowboy Hall of Fame, as well as the PRCA Rodeo Hall of Fame. Some o f the awards that Don earned include the Chester A. Reynolds Award from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame, the Governor's Quality Business Award for the state of Wyoming and the National Heritage Fellowship for the Folk Arts from the National Endowment for the Arts award. Another proud moment for Don and his family was when he became a founding member of the TCA (Traditional Cowboy Arts) Association. One of the most notable products that the King Saddlery makes are the ropes, which has become one of their specialities, and the store carries one of the biggest selections of various types of ropes anywhere, plus the standard lines of lariat ropes. These ropes have been stretched, sunned, tied straight and are ready to use for whatever need should arise. The place has also gotten into making hats for the casual cowboy, the majority being ball caps but some are for the winter and make great gifts for that cowboy of yours.  Besides being a great western museum, the store is another world of its own, complete with an enormous selection of cowboy paraphenalia that includes; saddle bags, bridles, slickers, bits, halters, saddle blankets, barrel racing equipment, reins, headstalls and roping equipment. The store also carry a large selection of western gift items, like the dishes, frames, jewelry, horse related instructional videos and books. It is a fantastic place and way to spend the day, especially if you have children, since almost all young boys at one time or another has dreamt of being a cowboy.

  • Trail End State Historic SiteTrail End State Historic Site Sheridan, Wyoming
    Trail End State Historic Site is located in Sheridan, Wyoming, and is the biggest and most authentically furnished house museum in the state. Just about everything that you will see at Trail End is either original to the house or the Kendrick family; with the marvelous 4 acre site still having the trees that were planted by the Kendrick family when the initial landscaping was completed in 1914. The state was presented with the Kendrick estate in 1982, and it has been a showplace for tours and self-guided tours ever since; offering thousands of people from all over the world a taste of what this great state, town and estate has to offer. The house has been shown on many television shows, like A&E's America's Castles and HGTV's Christmas Castles. It has been shown in magazines, newspapers and books and continues to draw visitors hoping to discover the many magnificent sights that exist in this northern western state. The estate was the home of John B. Kendrick and family; who had come here from Texas with his wife and two children and became one of the most successful ranchers and politicians from the great state of Wyoming. John was a self-educated man who came here from Texas as a penniless cowboy and ended up a United States Senator. Between those two extremes, he would be a rancher, land developer, banker, entrepreneur and governor. John had a hard life, like so many great men in this country, losing his parents at an early age, he was raised by relatives until he left on his own at age 15 to start his life and adventures. In 1879, he went to Wyoming on a cattle drive as a trail rider; organized by his future father-in-law. He began his political career in 1910 by being elected to the state's senate and six years later went to Washington as the US senator from Wyoming.  The house is a beautiful Flemish revival style home with 13,748 square feet of space filled with magnificent furnishings and memories of the wonderful family that lived here for so many years. The story of the Hendricks, especially John, is one of the American dream, of very humble and poor beginnings and through hard work, honesty and perseverance, he became a United States senator with a loving and caring family that continued his attributes and characteristics long on after he passed on. The estate will take you back to the early 20th century, when Wyoming was still part of the old wild west, when it took hard steady work to achieve anything worthwhile, much as it does today, although with the internet and all the other electronic devices, a small fortune can be made readily enough, if you work hard, and care about those around you. The Trail End State Historic Site is one place you will surely want to visit when you come to the exciting state of Wyoming. One of the most interesting states in the nation, with a spectacular history, majestic scenery and the friendliest people anywhere.   

  •  Fort Phil Kearny State Historic SiteFort Phil Kearny State Historic Site Sheridan, Wyoming
    Fort Phil Kearny was a fort for the US army that stood along the Bozeman Trail near Sheridan, Wyoming in the late 1860s, built in 1866, by companies A, C, E and H of the 2nd Battalion, 18th Infantry under Colonel Henry B. Carrington, mountain district commander and regimental commander. The fort was named in honor of Maj. Gen. Philip Kearny, a well known general in the Civil War, and not to be confused with the Fort Kearny in Nebraska that was named after Phil's uncle, Stephen W. Kearny. Presently, the fort and nearby Wagon Box and Fetterman batle sites are managed by the state as the Fort Phil Kearny State Historic Site. The fort was set on the eastern side of the Bighorn Mountains in northern Johnson County, about 15 miles north of Buffalo; and along with Fort Reno and Fort C. F. Smith, constructed on the Bozeman Trail in the Powder River country during the height of the Indian Wars. They were built to protect miners and other folks that traveled along the trail north from the Oregon Trail to Montana. The fort was the biggest of the three stockades on the trail, with 8 foot high walls, encompassing an area of 17 acres. These walls measured 1496 feet in length, and the entire stockade needed over 4000 logs. During 1867, the construction needed more than 606,000 board feet of lumber and 130,000 adobe bricks. The fort was constantly being constructed, until December 1866, as it neared completion, the troops would be re-designated the 27th Infantry and at its height held 400 soldiers, 150 civilians, a surgeon, 9 officers and 329 enlisted men of the five infantry companies in the 18th/27th Infantry, as well as the newly recruited Company K, 27th, with 1 officer and 60 soldiers in Company C, 2nd Cavalry, 150 civilian quartermaster and contract employees. The fort became known as the "hated post on the Little Piney" to the local Indians and would come to play a significant part in Red Cloud's War. The land around the fortification became the site of the Fetterman massacre and the Wagon Box fight. In 1868, the Union Pacific Railroad had come far enough west so that emigrants could travel to the Montana gold fields by going through Idaho, thereby making the infamously dangerous Bozeman Trail obsolete. In 1868, at the Treaty of Fort Laramie, all three of the forts along the trail would be abandoned, and not too long after that, it was burned down by Cheyenne Indians. Fort Phil Kearny, the Fetterman massacre site and the Wagon Box fight site were made a National Historic Landmark in 1960. The present day historic site contains a visitor's center with many displays, bookstore, videos and self-guided tours of the fort's remnants and the sites outside it. The tour will show the archaeological remains of the fort's structures, and a cabin that was constructed by the CCC has been furnished with period items to show what conditions an officer's wife would be living under and a non-commissioned officer's quarters. When you visit here, the two battlefields are within a five mile distance of the center and has interpretive trails. Red Cloud's War is also known as the Bozeman War or the Powder River War, and was an armed battle between the Lakota, Arapaho and northern Cheyenne and the United States army in Wyoming and Montana territories from 1866 to 1868.

  • Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument Sheridan, Wyoming
    The Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument has preserved the site of the infamous June 25, 1876 Battle of the Little Bighorn near Crow Agency, Montana and has become the memorial to the brave men that fought in that battle; George Custer's 7th Cavalry against a combine force of Lakota-Northern Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians. Custer National Cemetery sits on the battlefield and is part of the monument; as does the site of a related military action headed by Marcus Reno and Frederick Benteen, some three miles southeast of the main battlefield. On January 29th, 1879, the secretary of war would preserve the site as a US National Cemetery to protect the gravesites of the 7th Cavalry soldiers buried there. On December 7, 1886, the site would be made the National Cemetery of Custer's Battlefield Reservation that would also include the burials of other campaigns and battles; and then later shortened to Custer National Cemetery. In 1877, Custer's remains would be moved to the West Point Cemetery, and in April of 1926, the Reno-Benteen battlefield would be added to the site. In 1940, the site would be transferred to the National Park Service, and in 1946 redesignated the Custer Battlefield National Monument. In October of 1966, the site was added to the National Register of Historic Places and in August of 1983, a wildfire whipped across the site due to dense thick thorn scrub that had grown up over the years, but now was burnt flat, which was a blessing in disguise since archaeologists could now have access to the site. In December of 1991, it would be renamed once more to the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. The initial memorial that was erected on the site was put together by Captain George K. Sanderson and the 11th Infantry; burying soldiers bodies where they were found and taking away any animal bones. Lt. Charles F. Roe and the 2nd Cavalry would build the granite memorial in 1881 that now sits atop Last Stand Hill. The bill that was passed to rename the site had also stated that an Indian memorial should also be constructed close to Last Stand Hill. There are markers that honor the brave Indians who fought in that battle, that included Crazy Horse, and added to those of the soldiers. On Memorial Day, 1999, the first of five red granite markers showing where the braves fell in the battle were put into place for Cheyenne warriors Lame White Man and Noisy Walking. Lame White Man, or Bearded Man to the Lakota or Mad Hearted Wolf had captured a cavalry jacket found on the cantle of a saddle and decided to put it on, which was his last mistake in the world; especially when a Miniconjou Lakota warrior believed to be Little Crow thought that he was an Indian scout and shot him.

  • Hang Gliding Hang Gliding Sheridan, Wyoming
    Many people have called the area around Sheridan and Dayton, Wyoming; hang gliding heaven, and it just may well be since the area is on the eastern slopes of the Big Horn Mountains in the Great Rocky Mountains. They are sure that the best thermals are located here that allow a hang glider to stay in the air longer and higher than anywhere else in the nation. It has become a magnificent area and very popular so that Hang Glider Fly-In Festivals are held every weekend from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Often hundreds of tourists will come to watch, with some of the hang gliders asking bystanders to take their vehicles down the mountain, which says a lot about these folks and the people that come here to watch and wonder, could I? One of the organizers and glider instructors has asked other folks to take his vehicle down and in 22 years, he nor any of his friends or gliding acquaintances has lost anything from their cars. Journalist have been included in the events, as well as driving down someone's car, so they can get an insider's view of the sport and events; but always paired with someone that has been doing this for some time.

  • T-Rex Natural History MuseumT-Rex Natural History Museum Sheridan, Wyoming
    The T-Rex Natural History Museum is just 12 miles outside of Sheridan, Wyoming and has some interesting and exciting stories to tell about these monstrous behemoths that lived so long ago and we are mighty glad they aren't around today to let us know how powerful and dangerous these wild creatures were. At the museum, they are all dead, bones and skeletons, with a marvelous lecture given about the T-rex and other dinosaurs that roamed the northern plains millions of years ago. In fact, about 65 million years ago, in the region that is now Wyoming, South Dakota and Montana, these enormous predators walked the earth in fear of no one or nothing. The humungous creatures had 5 foot skulls and up to 8 inch teeth, with large jaw muscles that could snap a tree in two within seconds and run up to 45 miles an hour; so of course, there wasn't anything on God's green earth that bothered or scared it; unless it was a much bigger t-rex. This museum is one of the newest attractions in the region, that lies on the scenic trail to the Yellowstone via the Bighorn Mountains. The museum has a great picture spot where you can take your picture with a life sized cast skull of Sue, a female T-rex, with dinosaur dioramas that contain a velociraptor, allosaurus vs. diplodocus, t-rex vs. triceratops, ankylosaurus and parasaurolophus. A 1 to 8.75 scale skeletons of Sue and Stan stand here to let you imagine the gigantic difference between man and dinosaur. Their fossil diorama shows how dinosaur bones have become fossilized and the theory that these huge creatures were warm blooded. A marvelous collection of mineral and crystals, fluorite, calcite, quartz crystals and petrified wood is located inside as well. There are minerals from Arizona and California, tri state crystals and Mexican minerals also. The gift shop has many quality dinosaurs for sale, books, t-shirts, mugs, fossils and minerals, crystals, Wyoming mineral maps, mineral sets and Native American jewelry.

  • Tongue River Cave
    The Tongue River Cave is located in the Bighorn National Forest west of Dayton, Wyoming and historically known for its various rare rock formations and animal species; but because of the indifference of people, unrestricted traffic, vandalism and the stealing of numerous of the cave's speleothems, the cave is considered beyond saving and is managed by the US Forest Service as a "sacrifice cave". The cave is found in the Madison Limestone and was mapped in 1969 by the National Speleological Society, with 1.23 miles of passages and 106 feet deep. It is made of two separate river channels, one abandoned and the other active. The active stream is an underground part of the Little Tongue River that resurges farther down on the east side of the Tongue River Canyon. The two channels intersect about a half mile in, in a big chamber that is called the Boulder Room, with the upper channel mostly dry and sandy, ending in a sand-filled chamber. Some attempts have been done to explore the lower active channel, but the low water temperatures and the almost impossible task of bringing in the right scuba equipment through tight passages has hampered such attempts. In October of 1974, a flourescent dye was put into the waters of the Little Tongue River some 2.6 miles to the south of the entrance to the cave, and was seen inside the cave's river, thus verifying that the river was the source of the cave's stream; and waterfalls have been created in some areas of the cave because of rapid erosion and the softer stone and has a fantastic 24 foot drop at the cave's Big Falls. The snowmelts and rain has also contributed to the river's water level in the cave, with some rapid increase in the level days after the event happened; but flash flooding seems to be a rare occurrence. The temperature stays a constant 50 degrees with almost 100% humidity and about 750 feet into the cavern, the main passage constricts into a very narrow crawl where the barometric equalization of the cave's atmosphere with the outside temperature causes high winds. Close to the entrance, condensation forms from the interaction of the subterranean and surface air masses colliding and thus forming the cave's Rain Room where drops of water are continuously falling. There are two types of bats in the cave, or they were there, since they haven't been sighted lately, perhaps due to the large amount of traffic that comes to the cave. One is Townsend's Big-eared bat and the Fringed Myotis bat; but many think that these creatures have left; while there is one reclusive cave rat still living there, but in the lower crawlways below the entrance chamber. If you are interested in caves, you might want to go there before it is closed because someone has gotten hurt or privatized to keep all folks out.

  • Rose BudRosebud Battleground Wyoming
    Rose Bud is about 30 miles northeast of Sheridan, Wyoming, and it was here that General George Crook in Sheridan, where the Little and Big Goose creeks unite, and Crook got word that Crazy Horse had big villages camped on the Rosebud. It was 1876, and it would become one of the best known military actions against the plains Indians. On June 16, 1876, Crook and his soldiers headed towards the Rosebud, and on the following morning, while still camped at the head of the Rosebud, shots were heard and the two large forces met. It would rage on for three hours, with 9 men dying and 30 seriously wounded; and still camp there for the night. On the morning sunrise, they buried their dead and went back to their camp on the Goose Creeks by Sheridan. It would be a great victory for Crazy Horse, stopping the white soldiers and protecting his people from their invasion. Crook had left his wagons and ambulances at Sheridan because they had been slowing him down. On the 14th of June, 176 Crow and 86 Shoshone under Chief Washakie joined Crook and his men; which was a good thing since Crazy Horse had been warned of the large contingency of soldiers by Little Hawk's encounter at Tongue River. On June 17, the soldiers were surprised by the Indians at the Rosebud, just north of the Wyoming border, and Crook was staring at around 1500 fierce Indians led by Crazy Horse himself. It was discovered later, that one of the seriously wounded soldiers had shot himself. These men had to be taken away by riding their own horses or by travois. One of those that had to be evacuated by travois was Captain Guy Henry, who would later write in an article for Harper's Weekly in July, 1895, "I felt a sharp sting as if being slapped in the face, and a blinding rush of blood to my head and eyes. A rifle bullet had struck me in the face, under my left eye, passing through the upper part of my mouth, under the nose, and out below the right eye. I retained my saddle for a moment, then dismounted and lay on the ground. The Sioux in their desparate charge actually passed over me and had it not been for Washakie, chief of the Shoshones, fighting over my body; my scalp would have been lifted." Henry would have a terrible time of getting help, going over 200 hundred miles to get medical treatment and when he finally did, it would take a year to recuperate. However, he would be promoted to Brig. General and then in the Spanish War, promoted to major general. The Battle of Rosebud is considered an Indian victory and some say that if Crook had told of the strength of the Indian forces, Custer, eight days later, would not have suffered the massacre that he did.

  • Sheridan County Museum
    The Sheridan County Historical Society Museum opened its new location in 2006, with many area locals not realizing that they even had a museum like this in Sheridan, Wyoming. In 2002, the society started a project to improve the accountability and preservation of its artifacts collections. The society did have an exhibit and held many collections in the basement of the Sheridan Inn, since 1991, but the relics didn't benefit from basic collections management, like good documentation, security measures, interpretation and preservation. After realizing all this, the society hired a museum professional who catalogued and assessed the collection. After much hard work, the society learned that a museum would be in order for Sheridan County. There have been monumental moments in the history of the county, but none actually told the story of the county and its citizens. The cultural gap had been in existence since the society left Trail End twenty years before. Soon everyone realized that a county museum was beneficial and appropriate, since many of the prominent collections were being sold to collectors, thus making them unavailable for the education and enlightenment of those people that had lived here for many years. So, in 2004, the society opened the new but small Sheridan County museum on Alger Avenue, but naturally outgrew it fairly quick. Then, in 2005, the society got an offer that it couldn't refuse, the owner of the Bubba's Restaurant offered to sell them their building for much less than the market value and in the next 13 months, was able to raise $1.5 million to buy and refurbish the structure. During that time, the society members would build, modify, design and fabricate cases and exhibit furniture so that the museum would be ready to go, although there are still some catching up to do. There is still more to do, but the main work and location has been accomplished and they are ready for visitors to come here and enjoy learning about the county and town.

  • Big Horn Museum Big Horn Museum Sheridan, Wyoming
    The Big Horn Museum or known locally as the Bozeman Trail Museum was constructed in 1879 by the Rock Creek Stage Line, and the blacksmith shop is now home to the Bozeman Trail museum. Located in Big Horn, Wyoming, 10 miles south of Sheridan, Wyoming, the museum is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The collection includes many Indian relics, photos of the area, pioneer clothing, dentistry tools, books, blacksmith tools and numerous artifacts from the pioneering families themselves.

Hanna, who constructed the first log cabin in Sheridan County; Bear Davis who earned his name the hard way by killing 159 bears; William and Malcolm Moncreiffe, Scottish immigrants who raised thousands of horses for the British cavalry in the latter 1800s and early 1900s; Oliver H. Wallop, who also raised horses for the British cavalry and would later become the Earl of Portsmouth in 1925; Jack Dow who was a land surveyor and platted the majority of the roads, towns and ditches in northern Wyoming; William Jackson, who was the first supervisor of the Big Horn National Forest; Charles Bard, whose family knew almost all of the main players in the Johnson County Cattle War; Jerome Brown, was a Johnson County commissioner during that war; John H. Sackett and Charles Skinner, constructed the Big Horn Mercantile building that is still used today and J. O. Willits, who raised horses and became a farmer and rancher; as well as building a reservoir in the mountains in 1913.

  • Connor Battlefield
    The Battle of the Tongue River, or the Connor Battle was to be the biggest conflict between the Native American tribes of Arapaho, Southern Cheyenne and Lakota Sioux and the United States army in the Powder River Expedition. It would decimate the Arapaho tribe so that they could no longer muster enough Indians to raid the Bozeman Trail or overland mail routes. In 1865, Maj. Gen. Grenville M. Dodge took command of the Department of the Missouri and ordered a punitive campaign against the Sioux, Arapaho and Southern Cheyenne; who had been raiding the overland mail carriers. Dodge ordered Brig. Gen. Patrick E. Connor to take tactical command of the expedition; who was the commander of the Utah district. Connor didn't have much experience fighting the Indians until late August of 1865, after finding a band of 500 Arapahos under the command of Chiefs Medicine Man and Black Bear, on the Tongue River in north central Wyoming. Connor was in command of a troop of 400 men and decided to move against the larger force, and on August 29, he arrived at the village sitting on an area of land where the Tongue River creates a bottleneck. Chief Black Bear and a great number of the warriors were away, fighting the Crow on the Big Horn River, but Medicine Man, other older men, women and children were in the camp still. Connor and his troops charged the village at 7:30 in the morning, with the remaining warriors and men trying to make a stand so that the women and children could escape. Once the soldiers had control of the village, the Indians began a counter attack, so Connor brought up the two howitzers he had brought with him to hold off the attack. Fighting continued until it was dark, with the battle being won by the army, with the Indians losing or having wounded 63. The soldiers did capture 18 of the children and women, but later released them; with more than a 1000 Indian ponies and horses being massacred. There isn't any physical evidence of the battle, but the ground is preserved in the Connor Battlefield State Historic Site in Ranchester, Wyoming; listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
