Our annual Hole in the Wall Tour, which will be held on Saturday, June 10, 2023 traces the steps of the Outlaw Era from the sympathy towards rustlers and outlaws that resulted from the Johnson County War through the famous Hole in the Wall Fight.
The tour begins in Kaycee at the KC Fight site, then the site where the Hole in the Wall gang hid from the posse after the Wilcox Train Robbery. It then follows the Old Barnum Road to the location where Kid Curry of the Hole in the Wall gang shot Sheriff Deane before traveling into the famous Hole in the Wall Valley. Here the numerous stories of fact regarding local outlaws are related by knowledgeable authors and local historians. Site stops include overlook of the Hall Cabin where Champion was first ambushed, the entire valley, the homestead site of Alex Ghent, horse trader and friend of the outlaws, the real Hole in the Wall site, where a picnic lunch is enjoyed, before finally traveling to the Hole in the Wall Gap on the Red Wall.
The tour is an important fundraiser for the museum, and costs $105 per person. This includes continental breakfast, a nice lunch, and a day in the famous Hole in the Wall country. Even if you are not a history buff, you will experience beautiful scenery and a unique day that few have the opportunity to share.
