Old Trail Town


The hideouts of Butch Cassidy, Kid Curry and the Sundance Kid comprise this unique museum, a collection of late-19th-century wooden buildings relocated here from all over Wyoming. Look for the bullet holes in the door of the Rivers Saloon and the grave of mountain man Jeremiah ‘Liver-Eating’ Johnson, re-buried here in 1974 with Robert Redford as one of the pallbearers.
