Relocated from the nearby mountains in 1999, the historic log-built Dennison Lodge (now situated just west of the Dubois Museum) is used for community events such as lectures, plays, and music performances, as well as for private events such as wedding receptions. Originally the lodge was the center of an invitation-only ranch visited by the rich and famous, including Clark Gable and Carol Lombard. The Live From the Dennison concert series has drawn musicians from all over and is broadcast around the world on public radio and television.

One of the nation’s largest herds of wild bighorn sheep live in the mountains near Dubois. The exhibits at the National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center portray the habitat and habits of these remarkably adaptive animals, or you may be able to spot them on the cliffs during one of the center’s guided tours.

Between October and March, the Center’s winter tours provide a wonderful opportunity to view wildlife on their primary winter range, at Whiskey Mountain. Tours typically start at 9:00 AM and average 3-4 hours. The cost is $100 per person. A minimum of two guests is required (or one person can do the tour for $200); our van seats 7 people. We appreciate at least 48-hour notice to book tours. Call or email us at info@bighorn.org for further information.
