Big Horn Mountains

The Bighorns are a popular destination for hiking, backpacking, fly fishing, horse back riding and increasingly ATV riding and snowmobiling. Trails wind through most of the national forest. The Cloud Peak Wilderness has a network of hiking trails to remote areas and alpine lakes. Higher trails are often covered with snow except from July through August. After Labor Day, there is a good chance of high country snow storms at any time.

Johnson County is riddled with historic locations such as the Fort Phil Kearny site where you can learn about the Fetterman Battle and the Wagon Box Fight. Visit the Outlaw Caves, hideout to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid or the famous TA Ranch where the Johnson County Cattle War came to a dramatic end.

Jim Gatchell Museum

The Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum has been a part of the Buffalo community since 1900 when Jim Gatchell opened a drugstore. The Buffalo Pharmacy was a stopping place for cowboys, lawmen, settlers, cattle barons, and famous army scouts. As a trusted friend of the region's Native Americans, he received many gifts representing the culture including guns, war bonnets, tools, medicine bags, bows, arrows, and clothing. Soon local residents were donating mementos of Johnson County's historic names, places, and events.After Jim Gatchell's death in 1954, his family generously donated his collection to the people of Johnson County with the provision that a museum be built to house it. After three years of fundraising the museum was established, and in 2002 the museum achieved national accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums.In the early 1990s the museum hit hard times financially as Johnson County struggled with a declining economy. A group of community-minded individuals formed the Gatchell Museum Association, Inc. as a private non-profit organization with the mission of raising money for the future support of the museum. They have been building an endowment fund and supporting many museum projects ever since. One of their projects is offering membership to the museum.Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
