Culture

 
Baptist church in Ten Sleep

Near the entrance to nearby Ten Sleep Canyon is the former site of the Girl Scout National Center West, a portion of which was one of the largest encampments in the world at 15,000 acres (61 km2). A part of that site is now owned and operated by the Nature Conservancy as the Tensleep Preserve, with facilities for workshops and seminars.

Ten Sleep Mercantile, also known as Ten Sleep Hardware, is an example of a typical small-town general store and it has been the focal point of the town since it was built in 1905 by H.T. Church. The building is an example of the tall, narrow and deep commercial buildings commonly found in small American towns. From 1919 to 1943 the store was operated by Paul Frison, who served as mayor of Ten Sleep and as a Wyoming state legislator.[6]

The area continues to thrive as a ranching community. Other industries include mineral extraction (bentonite) and tourism. Logging and other small businesses have dwindled, leaving just a handful of small businesses supporting the community. Three cafes/restaurants, two bars, two motels, a historic hardware store, campground, bank, and a gas station/ convenience store offer the primary services for visitors and locals.

With a diversity of outdoor opportunities, locals mingle with tourists everywhere. Beyond the traditional activities such as hunting, fishing and horseback riding, outdoor enthusiasts today are found within a few miles of Ten sleep participating in rock climbing, kayaking, spelunking, mountain biking, off-highway vehicle riding and camping, which draw explorers from near and far. Kids still wade in Ten Sleep Creek at the City Park and catch trout anywhere along the stream as it meanders through town. Mid-summer is celebrated by tubing (floating the creek on inner tubes).

Annual celebrations include a two-day rodeo and parade, hinging on the 4th of July celebration of Independence Day (United States). The town's population temporarily quadruples over this period, as tourists and area residents gather to celebrate. The main street is also closed to through traffic to accommodate live music that lasts into the wee hours of the morning. Another annual tradition is NoWoodStock, held the second weekend of August. An eclectic mixture of folk, bluegrass, swing, jazz and rock makes this wonderful celebration of music a destination for locals, neighbors and worldwide tourists.

Ten Sleep has a microbrewery named Ten Sleep Brewing Company, which began brewing in October 2013 and produces various beers.

One of the old-time Wyoming residents from Ten Sleep who moved away as a young adult seeking a career was Audrey Vonona Davis Bailey, born at the nearby Rice Ranch bunkhouse on December 27, 1916, amid impassable snow and temperatures of fifty degrees below zero. She and her three brothers were reared on the Triangle E. Davis Ranch by their parents, Lester James and Audrey Odessa Davis. As a ranch girl, she developed an interest in livestock, field work, gardening, and wildlife. She graduated from the Ten Sleep school system, worked at the sanitarium in Basin, Wyoming, and later graduated from the University of Wyoming in Laramie, where she met her husband, Joseph Spencer Bailey, who was studying civil engineering. They married in 1941, but World War II delayed a normal home life for the couple and their soon three children. Audrey joined a caravan of other military wives which followed their husbands from coast to coast. The Baileys established their permanent residence in Cheyenne in 1947, when Joseph took a position with the Portland Cement Association. Audrey Bailey owned an arts and crafts business and was aseamstress. In her spare time, she was a bridge player, rock hunter, golfer, snow skier, skater, fly fisherman, and a hunter of moose and bighorn sheep. She worked for Welcome Wagon through her local Chamber of Commerce and was secretary of the Wyoming State Mineral and Gem Society, with her husband as past president. When Bailey died in Cheyenne shortly before her 98th birthday, she had outlived her parents, husband, one of her three children, and a son-in-law, who had been her guide on the big-game hunts.

History

 

 

 

Ten Sleep was an American Indian rest stop, so called because it was 10 days' travel, or “10 sleeps,” from Fort Laramie (southeast), Yellowstone National Park(west-northwest), and the Indian Agency on the Stillwater River in Montana (northwest). There are numerous archeological sites throughout the area, with frequent discoveries of artifacts such as arrowheads, pictographs and petroglyphs.

Ten Sleep was also the site of the Spring Creek Raid, one of the last feuds of the West's Sheep and Cattlemen's War. It was there in March, 1909 that cattlemen attacked sheep herders and their flock, killing three men and shooting hundreds of the sheep. Caught and convicted, this was the end of major conflict, although it was many years before the two livestock growers' groups resolved their differences.

 

 

 

 

 

Archeology/Paleontology 

 

 

 


Rich in prehistory, fossil specimen of dinosaurs, plants and sealife are prolific throughout the region. One such area, Big Cedar Fossil Ridge, as described on Page 4 of the link, is open to the public for exploration and collection for personal use.


 

 

 

 

Geology

 

 

 

 

The yellowish-gray to white sandstone which forms much of Ten Sleep Canyon is named the Tensleep formation (Pennsylvanian), and dominates much of the western slope of the Big Horn Mountains. The prominent red sandstone, such as Signal cliff just west of Ten Sleep, as well as the dirt hills all along the west slope of the Big Horn Mountains are of the Chugwater formation (Triassic). Called the "Painted Desert" or "Colored Hills" by locals, the Cloverly formation is finely granuled sandstone, clay and "gumbo". The Cloverly formations contains bands of various mineral colors ranging from greens and grays to red and violets, and are closely associated with strata containing dinosaur fossils. Numerous signs along U.S. 16 from Buffalo, through Ten Sleep and west to Worland identify the various geologic formations and their millennia.
