On our way to Yellowstone, we stayed overnight in Buffalo, WY. In the morning we made a point to stop at this museum. Tickets were $5.00 each. Free parking is across the street.
Jim Gatchell opened a drugstore in 1900. He was part of this community for many years. The museum has exhibits that include Native American gifts that were given to him through the years. He was trusted & a friend by many. You will learn much about Johnson county history including the Johnson county cattle war of 1892. You are not allowed to take pictures inside.
Out front there is The Nate Champion Statue.
If you are on your way to Yellowstone or back this is a great place to stop. Everyone we met in Buffalo was so friendly & went out of their way to be helpful.
After we left, we took Hwy 16. This is a beautiful drive.
Just a block or two away is the Occidental Hotel. Make time to walk there. You won't have to move your car. It was fun to have a look around.
