Wyoming Territorial Prison Butch Cassidy Day

Event Details:

It’s the 125th anniversary of the sentencing of Robert LeRoy Parker, “Butch Cassidy.” Butch was incarcerated in the Wyoming Territorial Prison in 1884 for a two-year sentence and was granted a pardon by Gov. Richards after 18 months by most accounts of being a model prisoner.

Join us for Butch Cassidy Day on July 12 from 3:00 – 7:00 pm. Adults $7.00, Youth ages 12-17 $3.50, Children 11 and under Free, Wyoming State Parks Annual Daily Use permits and Wyoming Lifetime Veteran permits are honored as Free admission.

The park opens at 8 a.m. with regular day of activities and tours. Plan on staying later in the day, when we start our special Butch Cassidy Day events and activities which includes Gun Fighters at 3:30 p.m. and Cassidy Re-enactment at 4 p.m. There will be a Winchester Rifle Exhibit and a special appearance by Robert Fuller, star of TV western series “Laramie.” Food vendors will be available.
