While the site is not extensively promoted, Legend Rock is already a world-renowned petroglyph site. Legend Rock has been a sacred site for Native Americans of this region for thousands of years. Local concern for the preservation and protection of the site led to acquisition of the property as a Wyoming State Petroglyph Site in 1973. During the same year, the site was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Mr. Skinner had become a popular figure in town and his saloon was usually bustling. A sign on the front of the building read "free drinks served at all hours" but, anyone inquiring about it soon learned that the free drinks came from a well by the front door. His business was so profitable that he had a new two story building constructed, that covered 1 1/2 lots. Beside his saloon the building housed a cafe, barbershop and hotel.
