Notes
Survey number HABS WY-109
Significance: The Rock Well or Thornburg Homestead is associated with early twentieth-century dry-land farming and ranching on the semi-arid lands of Campbell County. The stone dugout represents one of the best-preserved examples of this kind of dwelling in northeastern Wyoming. It is still in good physical condition and is unusually well crafted.
