The Johnson County War Tour, offered by the Hoofprints of the Past Museum in Kaycee, will be this Saturday, August 17th, and it has been sold out.

Museum Curator Laurel Foster said the tours offered by the museum typically do sell out, but those interested in taking the tours should check availability anyway.

Also, the public can register for the museum's flier that is sent out in February, which lists all the information for the upcoming tours that year.

The bus for the Johnson County War Tour will leave the museum at 9 Saturday morning and visit sites along the path taken by the invaders during the events of the Johnson County War in 1892,including the KC Fight site; the Plunkett Headquarters on the North Fork; the ambush site at Carr Homestead; the 28 Ranch; the TA Ranch Battle; and stops at the John Tisdale and Ranger Jones murder sites.

John W. Davis, an expert on the Johnson County War and author of the book “Wyoming Range War,” will tell the story of the invasion and talk about the events leading up to the invasion and its aftermath.

Although this tour is booked for this year, the museum will be offering a tour of the Sussex area east of Kaycee in September called “Forts, Fights, and Frontier Sites,” and we will have more in that tour in an upcoming story.

More information on the tours can be had through the Hoofprints of the Past Museum in Kaycee.
