This historic Western town holds a storied past of Shoshone Indians and infamous outlaws like Butch Cassidy and Billy the Kid.
Located just 32 miles south of Cody, the history of Meeteetse, Wyoming, can still be seen throughout the town. Wooden watering troughs, boardwalks, historic buildings from the turn of the century and hitching rails are all still proudly standing. You can learn more about Meeteetse’s history, including the Pitchfork Ranch – a late 1800s cattle empire – and famous guests of the history Double D Dude Ranch, through tours run by Meeteetse Museums. Experience the outdoors by fishing trophy cutthroat trout on the Greybull River or watching for elk, pronghorn antelope and other wildlife along Hwy 290. Don’t leave without trying a truffle made by a local rodeo cowboy at Meeteetse Chocolatier. Founder Tim Kellogg hung up his saddle in favor of creating decadent chocolates with flavors unique to Wyoming.
