Buffalo is a historic town nestled in the foothills of the Bighorn Mountains. For those who want to discover more about the state’s past, Buffalo houses a number of historic buildings in its downtown district. For example, the 131-year-old Occidental Hotel, whose famous guests include Butch Cassidy and Teddy Roosevelt, and the Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum, which first opened its doors in 1900, are frequent hits with tourists. This area of the town perfectly preserves the architectural styles of the turn-of-the-century Midwest. If you take just a short drive out of town, you will be able to experience a variety of activities in the mountains, from skiing and boating to just taking in the scenery.
