The Story Of Outlaw Clubfoot George Lane Might Be One Of Montana’s Weirdest Tales

We’re no stranger to weird places and odd stories here in Montana — after all, we’re home to the remains of the world’s largest steer. However, it’s especially odd that we have the remains of some deformed foot bones sitting in a museum in Virginia City. They belong to Clubfoot George Lane, a mysterious outlaw from Montana’s early days.
