Museum at the Bighorns Visitor Services Coordinator Chip King made an appearance on Sheridan Media’s Public Pulse to discuss the next History Happy.

Although the Museum at the Bighorns is shut down while staff make a big move to Sheridan’s downtown, History Happy Hour remains a popular ongoing program. Facilitated by members of the museum’s board and King, the program offers an opportunity to residents and visitors of Sheridan County to gather, share insights and perspectives of local history in a less formal setting while sharing a drink or two.

The next program will cover the history of the town of Story. 

C. King  

According to Sheridan County Travel and Tourism, Story was first platted by a horse trader named Marshall Wolf, who planned to give the town his own name; when he discovered that Wolf was already taken, he named the town after Charles B. Story, a rancher who was instrumental in getting a post office established – the first building in what had until then been a town made up of only tent structures.

Sheridan Media will have more on the next History Happy Hour as it develops.
