Big Horn

Seldom does such a small town have such big history. The site of this town has been occupied almost continuously since Capt. William Clark camped here in 1806. In 1807, Manuel Lisa built a trading post here. Fort Van Buren was built near here in 1822 at the mouth of the Big Horn River. In 1876, General Gibbon and a band of 450 men crossed the Yellowstone here on their way to help an already doomed General Custer.
