History:

Crowheart Butte was the site of a battle between the Crow and the Shoshone Indians in 1866. According to a legend about this battle, Chief Washakie of the Shoshone and Chief Big Robber of the Crow decided to have a duel to decide which tribe would claim rights to the Wind River Mountains as a hunting ground. Chief Washakie won the duel but was so very impressed with Chief Big Robber’s courage that he graciously opted NOT to scalp him. Rather, he cut out Big Robber’s heart and stuck it on the end of his lance.

Crowheart is a small community of only about 160 people.

Paranormal Reports:

Apparitions of a man riding a horse have been reported on a mountain side in the region.
