Stagecoach Roads in Sheridan County
The Buffalo-Montana Road followed the route of the military cutoff of the Bozeman Trail established between Fort Phi Kearny and Fort C.F. Smith in 1867. The modern county road closely follows the 1882 route, except the earlier road came from Big Horn through the gap in the Beaver Creek Hills to the east, rather than around the hills as the modern road does, From here it crossed Beaver Creek over a bridge and continued northwest to Beckton, Dayton, and Ohlman.
