Sundance is nestled in the Black Hills of Wyoming. Albert Hoge staked his claim in 1879, he was adamant that the town’s name was to be Sundance to honor the Native Americans and the sun dances they performed on the mountain south of the town-site. In 1879, Albert Hoge carefully surveyed the land and sold lots to future businesses. Lots for county and city government, eating establishments and saloons were sold first. His vision laid the foundation for what Sundance is today. Today Black Hills Professional Home Inspections LLC provides the best home and commercial inspections to the town of Sundance Wyoming.

One of the early settlers in the town was Charles Henry Sackett (1859-1937) who came to town in 1890 and established the leading saloon. There were, of course, multiple saloons, but most appealed to those interested in cheap drinks. Sackett’s saloon had an elaborate bar and oak furniture. Sackett, originally from Iowa, had been orphaned at age 12 and worked on river boats. He came west to Dakota Territory working on government survey crews. Later, he worked as cook, stage driver, and messenger until the stage line was put out of business by the advance of the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad. He then worked as a bartender in Rapid City until moving to Sundance and establishing his own saloon.
The Bear Lodge Mountains are approximately seven miles north of Sundance. There were two mining districts in the area of Sundance, The Bear Lodge District in which there was one mine and the Hurricane Mining District about ten miles north of Sundance in which there were three small placer mines. Gold mining efforts in the area were less than stellar. The three mines in the Hurricane district, as an example, yielded in 1907 only $600.00 in gold and 9 fine ounces of silver. Other mines in the area included the Independence mine operated by the Roenna Mining Company of Tinton, The Copper Prince and the Hutchins Consolidated Gold Mining Company mine. The latter two were each seven miles north of Sundance.
