Buffalo Ranch History

The ranch goes back to 1902 when there was an authorization to start a bison herd. At first they corralled the bison utilizing bison brought in as well as the few wild bison. The herd increased over the years and in some years they slaughtered and sold/gave away bison. The hay barn, the bunkhouse and ranger cabin were built in the 30's and now are on the historic register. The cabins were built by the Yellowstone Association as well as the wash house. The attached picture shows our visitors yesterday, Linda was trapped in our cabin, the one in the middle, for a short while until the bison decided to move on. Steve
