The Stagecoach Bar in Wilson has kept Jackson Hole fed, watered, and entertained since 1942. The historic bar is home to cowboys, hippies, and the famous Stagecoach Band, which has played every Sunday night for over 40 years.
It’s the subject of a film, ‘The Stagecoach Bar: An American Crossroads,’ airing on public television nationwide this year, and there’s a special screening of the film in Sheridan on Saturday, May 24. Jackson locals (in order of appearance) Phil and Wilden Round, Dail Barbour, John Simms, Clay Hoyt, Bill Briggs, Derrik Hufsmith, and Amelia Hufsmith share some memories of the local watering hole.
