Sidney is home to the World’s Foremost Outfitter but there’s much more here than just Cabela’s. There’s history at the Fort Sidney Museum & the Boot Hill Cemetery, parks, trails and more.
The Lodgepole Depot Museum is located in the former Union Pacific Railroad depot at 722 McCall Street (corner of McCall St. and Bates Blvd.), located one block north of Highway 30 in Lodgepole. It is open for viewing on weekends and by appointment by calling 308-483-5620.
The complex consists of the powder house; the married officer’s quarters which houses the Cheyenne County Museum; and the Post Commander’s Home, restored and refurbished with authentic articles of the late 1800’s. The Museum and the Post Commander’s home are a major attraction for the county.
