Six-Day Wagon Train Finishes In Deadwood On August 18

Forty wagons and over 200 riders committed to the 2018 ride. The exceptional turnout out was aided in part by social media, a tactic that hadn't been used to promote previous rides or wagon trains. The participants on this ride represented 22 states, coming from as far away as Florida, California, Georgia, and a Canadian province.

Local residents Alan Loken and Jon Mattson formed a committee that hand-picked a route through the most beautiful and historic places the region from Buckhorn, Wyo. to Historic Deadwood, S.D. has to offer. The ride, sponsored by the Days of ‘76 Museum, took place August 13-18, 2018.
