Our 2019 Hole in
the Wall Tour on June 22nd traces the steps of the Outlaw Era from the
sympathy towards rustlers and outlaws that resulted from the Johnson
County War through the famous Hole in the Wall Fight.
The tour begins in Kaycee at the KC Fight site, then the site where
the Hole in the Wall gang hid from the posse after the Wilcox Train
Robbery. It then follows the Old Barnum Road to the location where Kid
Curry of the Hole in the Wall gang shot Sheriff Deane before traveling
into the famous Hole in the Wall Valley. Here the numerous stories of
fact regarding local outlaws are related by knowledgeable authors and
local historians. Site stops include overlook of the Hall Cabin where
Champion was first ambushed, the entire valley, the homestead site of
Alex Ghent, horse trader and friend of the outlaws, the real Hole in the
Wall site, where a picnic lunch is enjoyed, before finally traveling to
the Hole in the Wall Gap on the Red Wall.
The tour is an important fundraiser for the museum, and costs $90 per
person. This includes continental breakfast, a nice lunch, and a day in
the famous Hole in the Wall country. Even if you are not a history
buff, you will experience beautiful scenery and a unique day that few
have the opportunity to share. If you would like to know more about the
tour, please contact the museum at 307-738-2381 or email email@example.com
