Dubois makes True West's Top 10 for Second Year

Is anyone surprised?!

Moving up two places, Dubois (home to the Thunderhead Ranch) earned the No. 2 spot on annual list.

Dubois took two steps up on the ladder of True West Magazine's 2011 Top 10 Western Towns, coming in at the No. 2 spot. The announcement made on Dec. 10 puts Dubois second only to Pendleton, Oregon.

After debuting on the list at No. 4 in its first attempt last year, capturing the No. 2 position is a real honor for the town. ..

The article states, "...the town regularly preserves its local heritage at annual events, ranging from the Swedish Smorgasbord to celebrate the Scandinavian heritage of loggers to Pack Horse Races to the Circle Up Chuckwagon Dinner Show. It's obvious that locals put a lot of sweat into preserving their town."...

"This year the competition was very tight," said True West Editor Bob Boze Bell. "But these towns really stand out. If you're into the history and the heritage of the West, you need to go visit each and every one of these towns."

Congratulations from TLC to Dubois, WY!
