Now, here's Sheridan Media's journey back in time to one hundred years ago, with reporter Pat Blair giving the daily news from The Sheridan Enterprise newspaper on Feb. 3,1914. The report mentions the commercial club – which was the forerunner of what's known today as the chamber of commerce.
Sec. Steele of the Commercial Club says he'll start work this week on a report on the possibilities of an interurban electric railway from Sheridan up the Big Goose valley to the Absaraka Park. There are no extensive communities in the valley, but there are scores of ranches, and the secretary believes freight traffic will be more than sufficient to pay for upkeep of the line.
