Many of us near the Bighorns know what a special place Spear-O-Wigwam is—it is famous for visits from the likes of Ernest Hemingway, and today, offers a unique blend of learning opportunities for the public via Sheridan College.

The property is also noted for its rustic-style ranch architecture, especially the lodge constructed in the shape of the ranch's brand. Located on the Bighorn National Forest, the buildings are currently used as a mountain campus for the Northern Wyoming Community College District. Do you have a special Spear-O memory or photo?
