Beauty on a Cold Day

Posted in

Although Sheridanites take it for granted, 100-years ago the Trail End was still under construction. Started in 1908, the 13,748 square foot mansion was not occupied until July of 1913. It took about 1-ton of coal each winter day to heat the building - perhaps more on a day like today when February ushered in a -18 degree low temperature. For more on the Trail End see: http://www.trailend.org/

Can You Name this Intersection?

Posted in

In addition to working on 20-miles of street repair over the next two to five years perhaps the City of Sheridan could work with WYDOT and finally get street signs posted on perhaps what is the only intersection in the city without signs. How about Sugar Lane and Coffeen Avenue as sign names to act as visual aids and thus help visitors to our area?

Done Plowing Yet?

This plow from a bygone era seen in Big Horn serves as a reminder that after snow plowing comes that other form of plowing. In its day this plow was pulled behind a horse or mule.
