The Old Mining Town In Wyoming With A Sinister History That Will Terrify You

When you think of Wyoming, you think of our peaceful mountain state, and I’m certain you feel safe. We know all of our neighbors here, and it’s easy to get involved with our towns and get to know local businesses. Perhaps that’s why it’s so shocking to hear the horrific story of Wyoming’s first – and worst – serial killer, who committed her crimes in a quiet mining town.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
