|Facility:||Range Riders Museum|
|Description:||The Range Riders Museum was built on the site of the 1876 Fort Keogh cantonment and was opened in August of 1941. This privately financed museum is located on the site where General Nelson A. Miles constructed Cantonment #1 to secure the area in the aftermath of the Custer Battle. The museum has grown in 55 years to include eleven buildings that house thousands of artifacts commonly found in the area. It portrays the authentic personality of men and women during the most difficult time in the life of a pioneer. It's the largest western museum in the area.
It has a wealth of displays including pictures of early day settlers, the famed Coggshall saddle, ladiesí side saddles, antiquated cameras, patchwork quilts, and household utensils. Immediately adjacent is the Pioneer Memorial Hall with over 700 plaques commemorating the regionís pioneers. Vast historic records are found in the stories of these people. Honoring these pioneers is the museumís tradition.
