Merritt Dana "M.D." Houghton (31 May 1846 -- March 1919) was an artist who traveled Wyoming creating pen and ink drawings of both existing and his interpretation of historic locations. He made his home at various times in Laramie, Saratoga, Buffalo, and Encampment where he completed large (and unknown) number of ink sketches of mines, ranches and landscapes. His many drawings and maps record an otherwise lost era in Wyoming's history.
