Local Legends
In 1896, Butch Cassidy met up with his boys in Piedmont before riding off to rob the Montpelier, Idaho bank. Treasure seekers still search for the stolen gold reportedly buried nearby. Calamity Jane, frontierswoman and professional scout, apparently lived in Piedmont as a young girl.

Piedmont Wyoming is now a ghost town. When the railroad rerouted the train to the north there was nothing to keep the settlers in Piedmont. The last settlers moved out in about 1940.
What's the Real Story?:
On August 13, 1896, Parker (Butch Cassidy), Lay, Harvey Logan and Bob Meeks robbed the bank at Montpelier, Idaho, escaping with approximately $7,000.
