DescriptionPine Bluffs, named for the stunted pine trees on the bluffs overlooking the area, was once an important watering place along the Texas Cattle Trail. In 1871 more than 600,000 head of cattle were herded through the Pine Bluffs Crossroads, making it the largest cattle shipping point in the world.
Texas Trail Museum preserves historic treasures of the area; phone (307) 245-3713. The University of Wyoming Archaeological Dig presents a look into civilization 10,000 years ago through extracted nomadic Native American artifacts displayed at the University of Wyoming Archaeological Educational Center, Second and Elm streets. Also of interest is the Our Lady of Peace Shrine. Reputed to be one of the largest Marian statues in the United States, it can be seen from the north side of I-80.
