Living History Days in Buffalo
The Big Horn Basque Club dancers, Zaharrer Segi, will participate this weekend at the annual Living History Days held at the Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum in Buffalo, Wyoming on June 29th. The event runs from 9am-2pm with activities running consecutively all day. The day includes the participation of many living historians including Rawhide Rope Makers, Frontier Music and Covered Wagon, Tomahawk Throwing, the Big Horn Basque Club and its dancers to name a few. It is a free event, and includes free admission to the museum all day. Jim Gatchell collected and recorded the history of the area for years, and when he passed away in 1954, his family sold the collection to Johnson County for a $1 so that it could be part of a museum.
