Learn the dark side of Sheridan with the Museum at the Big Horns

The Museum at the Bighorns will be hosting walking tours of the Sheridan Municipal Cemetery on September 19. 

Tour guides will discuss the history of the cemetery and the “Witches Circle” which lays at its center. 

The tour is scheduled for 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sept. 19. The cost for each tour is $10 per person per tour, and a limited number of spaces are available.  

Participants may sign up for the Cemetery Tours by calling the Museum at the Bighorns at 675-1150 or they may shop online at: www.museumatthebighorns.org.

Museum officials are asking participants to dress appropriately for weather conditions, and to wear sturdy walking shoes and bring a water bottle.  Each tour will last for about an hour-and-a-half. This year, all tour participants will be required to wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth.

The Museum at the Bighorns has also announced their evening program series, History After Dark.

Beginning this month, the first talk will be at the museum on Sept. 17, beginning at 5:30 p.m. This month’s subject will be Henry Jimerson. 

Jimerson was a Buffalo Soldier and a part of the Brownville Affray in Brownville, Texas. Following the incident Henry would move north to Sheridan, Wyoming where he would eventually be murdered.

This event is free to museum members and $5 per non-member.

Due to the nature of the event it will be required that masks be worn over the nose and mouth the entire time of the presentation. Seating will be limited. Those concerned about groups are encouraged to determine their own comfort level.

For further information on both events, call the Museum at the Bighorns at 307-675-1150.
