Explore History at The Hub to take the Big Goose Creek Walking Tour on Aug. 9

The Sheridan Community Land Trust and The Hub on Smith will take the Big Goose Walking Tour for their next Explore History program, at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9.  Attendees are asked to meet at The Hub on Smith. 

SCLT Historical Program Manager Carrie Edinger will guide the tour, which features sites in the Historic Downtown Sheridan area and Whitney Commons. Walkers will learn how Big Goose Creek has been an essential natural resource for the valley’s early inhabitants, into the settlement era and right up to today. 

Participants will learn about the Big Goose Creek Buffalo Jump, Sheridan Brewery, Sheridan Manufacturing Company Flour Mill, the Mandel Cabin and Sheridan’s first cabin, along with the historic rerouting of Big Goose Creek.

The walking tour is approximately three quarters of a mile and stops at 10 sites. SCLT does advise that there is very little shade on this tour and the following items are possibly needed on the tour depending on weather conditions: hat, water bottle, sunscreen or shade umbrella.

Rain date: 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 23 

This Explore History program offers open conversation for community members to share their memories or historical information about these sites.

If the walking tour is canceled due to weather, the Big Goose Creek virtual tour will be shown in the Hub on Smith Café.

Explore History at The Hub is a collaborative partnership between The Hub on Smith and SCLT.

The Explore History program is generously funded by the Next50 Initiative.
