Inscription. Near here emigrants traversed the Bozeman Trail, 1864-68 to Virginia City, Montana gold mines. Confronted with hostile Indians unwilling to share their hunting grounds, the trail became known as the "Bloody Bozeman" and was discontinued.
Crossing Little Goose Creek to the south and Jackson Creek to the west, the trail was later used from 1879-94 by Patrick Bros. Stage Line from Rock Creek near Laramie, Wyoming to Fort Custer on the Big Horn River in Montana.
This building was a blacksmith shop in the early 1880's to serve the stage line and ranchers of the valley.
 
Erected 1976 by Big Horn Wyoming Bicentennial Committee.
