Business Loop I-90 - Sundance

Home » Guides » Wyoming » Business Loop I-90 - Sundance

 

Business Loop I-90 follows U.S. 14 along West and Cleveland Streets through the Crook County seat of Sundance. With a population of over 1,200, the town of Sundance sits at an elevation of 4,750 feet above sea level. Towering above the community to the south is Sundance Mountain, which some say looks like a buffalo.

Sundance is the site for a particularly famous arrest and trial during the Wild West Days. The Sundance Kid (Harry Alonzo Longabaugh) was arrested for stealing a horse in 1887; Longebaugh gained his nickname as the Sundance Kid while in jail for 18 months. He was popularized in the 1969 film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, in which he was played by actor Robert Redford. A museum about the history of Crook County, including the Sundance Kid's visit, is located in the basement of the Crook County Courthouse in Downtown Sundance off Business Loop I-90.
