Our History

Bulldog Ranch on the west side of the trail was once a stagecoach station, run by Mrs. Bulldog, on the Custer to Deadwood line. Local artist Jon Crane has painted a picture of this site. The Bulldog Ranch was not only a stagecoach station but also a bootlegger's depot and an inn.

Dumont was named for an early French settler named Charles Dumont. The town was founded in 1890 as a lumber town and a shipping point for cattle. There was a railroad section house here. A spur of the Railroad line went northwest to Hanna. Through the years the industries faded away.
