Sue Lambert, of True West Magazine, recently visited Buffalo while on a tour of museums throughout the region, gathering information on an upcoming feature on rustic western museums.
Angela Jarvis, with the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce, explains further.
Jarvis said she was treated to a local dinner, was hung by the Wild Bunch and received a plaque in commemoration. There were also tours of the Occidental and the Jim Gatchell Museum and given information on the Hoofprints of the Past Museum in Kaycee.
Lambert also met descendants of those that participated in the Johnson County Cattle War and those that fed and housed Butch, Sundance and other “outlaws” from the turn of the last century, meeting living history from right here in Northeast Wyoming.
Jarvis said Lambert came away impressed not only with the hospitality of the area and the history, but the scenic beauty and what Lambert referred to as “true western town” where the history actually happened and where a bit of the old west still survives.
Jarvis said Lambert will encourage the owner of True West Magazine to make a trip to Buffalo and the rest of Northeast Wyoming to experience it for himself.
