Big Horn City ~ Between Massacre Hill & the Montana Line

Come visit the first homestead cabin site in what is now Big Horn, Wyoming. In 1878, O.P. Hanna decided to build his cabin near a clear creek, in a sheltered meadow with a magnificent view of the Big Horn Mountains. O.P. Hanna was the first permanent settler in what later became Sheridan County. He dedicated years as a founding father of business and local government. Tour will be hosted by the Big Horn City Historical Society. Included in the tour is a visit to the Bozeman Trail Museum that is housed in a building constructed in 1879 by the Rock Creek Stage Line and was the local blacksmith shop.  Some items of interest in the museum are dental tools, a pump organ, portions of the 1881 post office, artwork, photograph multiplex of pioneer families, blacksmith and farm implements, Indian artifacts, and other collectibles from local families.

Maximum 11 participants.  Sign up today by emailing amunford@thehubsheridan.org
