Back in our history Butch Cassidy robbed this bank and got away with a good sum of money. The owners have preserved some of the histories and it has a small gift shop. A fun place to stop if you want to stretch your legs...More

The Bank of Montpelier was made famous by Butch Cassidy relieving it of its funds. Cokeville, WY ran him out of town and 35 miles later. voile, he "visited" Montpelier.

There isn't much of a museum The building itself is what makes this interesting. It is the last remaining bank robbed by Butch and the boys. It does make a nice photo stop and a piece of history that is still standing.
