Hoofprints of the Past Museum

Kaycee, Wyoming

The  Hoofprints of the Past Museum was founded over twenty 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:

  • The Bozeman Trail
  • Early Settlement and Fort Reno
  • Native Americans and the Dull Knife Battle
  • The Johnson County Cattle War
  • Famous Outlaws

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:

  • School House
  • Mercantile Store
  • Post Office
  • Blacksmith Shop
  • Sheepwagon
  • Doctor’s Buggy 

The Museum also annuals hosts a number of events for the public that help share local history, such as: 

  • The Hole in the Wall Tour in June 
  • The Johnson County War Tour in August 
  • Historical Presentations
  • 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.
