BHCHS to meet Sunday @ Big Horn Woman’s Club clubhouse
May 21 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

BIG HORN — The Big Horn City Historical Society will meet Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Big Horn Woman’s Club clubhouse.

This month’s program will focus on “Big Nose George: On the Cold Trail of an Outlaw.”

In 1878, a gang of outlaws from the Powder River country entered Carbon County, attempted a train robbery and subsequently perpetrated the murder of two law enforcement officers. Big Nose George Parott was a principal figure in the gang and successfully avoided justice for the crime until 1880 when he was arrested in Montana.

This program discusses the crime, events leading up to it and the aftermath.

Dr. Mark E. Miller, a retired Wyoming state archaeologist, will lead the program. His great-grandfather, Ike C. Miller, was Carbon County sheriff at the time Big Nose George was hanged in Rawlins by a group of angry citizens.

The Big Horn Woman’s Club clubhouse is located at 214 S. Second St.
