The Hoofprints of the Past Museum was founded over 20 years ago by a group of local volunteers to preserve the unique cultural heritage of Kaycee and the surrounding countryside. That unique western history includes:PutHoofprints of the Past Museum into our Kaycee online travel planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
• The Bozeman Trail
• Early Settlement and Fort Reno
• Native Americans and the Dull Knife Battle
• The Johnson County Cattle War
• Famous Outlaws
The stories of these western events are shared through displays at the museum, in an historic building in downtown Kaycee. Our collection includes artifacts from famous local individuals and events, as well as a large number of Native American arrowheads.
And unlike many museums today, Hoofprints of the Past does not hide away its artifacts in storage, but shares them with the public through a number of old-time displays including a:
• School house
• Mercantile Store
• Post Office
• Blacksmith shop
• Doctor’s buggy
The Museum also has held a number of events for the public that help share local history, such as:
• Western Plays
• Musical Performances
• Historical Presentations and Book Signings
The museum has produced DVD’s of many of these events, which are for sale in our museum store. Our store also carries a large number of books on local history, western posters and art, cards, and t-shirts.
Hoofprints of the Past Museum reviews
Great community museum that interprets the fascinating history of the Powder River Basin.
The saddles ropes, pictures and other western items were excellent. Nicely displayed.
