During the Great Sioux War, General Phillip H. Sheridan was the commander of the Division of the Missouri - a territory that included northern Wyoming.  As it happened, most of the important battles of the Sioux War took place in northern Wyoming and southern Montana, and for that reason a fort was established at the foot of the Big Horn mountains after the war was over, to help keep the peace.

The fort was called Fort McKinney, and the town of Buffalo grew up close to it.  The first building in Buffalo - and always the finest hotel - was The Occidental Hotel.

Named in honor of General Sheridan, this room is furnished with antiques that are original to the hotel, including a splendid brass bed with a fine king-size pillow-top mattress.  The bathroom features a large easy-access tub and shower.
