Knowing Your Community

Readers,

Wyoming, and Sublette County in particular, are particularly young in historic terms. If you visit the GRVM, you’ll find that our oldest artifacts are around 150 years old. Our distant neighbors in the eastern US have histories that date back to the late 1400s! The museums there have many more vast collections of vastly older artifacts.

However, the youth of the area has its advantages. When you come to the GRVM you are immediately greeted with a close look at the tools used by our ancestors. With the guidance of staff, guests are allowed to hold or examine artifacts that were invaluable to the creation of the area. We have pictures of the founders of the area, and the wagons that the pioneers traveled in are on display.

Our Katie King Research Center is stuffed full of primary and secondary resources to help people learn more about Sublette County. This free service allows people to scan, print, and burn CDs as they further their research. This service that the GRVM offers is an important one. The museum is the memory of the area. This service keeps the memories alive by allowing anyone to come in and work, have a cup of coffee, and talk to staff about the area’s history.

We recently added indexes of the research center thanks to GRVM Board President, Tony David. This is where you can start your research. Find the name of a location or distant ancestor and then come check out the resources we have for you!

We encourage anyone and everyone to come and visit the GRVM and to check out the research services we provide, because you might not find anything like it anywhere else!

GRVM 2019

Readers,

We hope this update finds you well! We wanted to share with you all our plans and visions for 2019. As we open in June we hope to have as many events, classes, and new exhibits possible for all of our visitors. As always, our events have been free or by donation; something we’re able to continue this year from generous donations from the community. Keep it up!

In our early stages of planning, we are preparing for the usual for our season: a grand opening event, a speaker once a month, and various small events throughout the summer like movie and game nights. However, we are also looking to try new things! These new events and classes are designed with a educational purpose, and we hope you like them.

These include but are not limited to:

  • Dutch oven cooking - just like on the cattle drives.

  • Landscape painting and sketching

  • Rope making and leather working

Let us know how you feel about these ideas and keep in mind that we’re in the early stages of planning, some might happen and others may not.

We want to hear from you. What do you want to see and do at the GRVM this year? Let us know in the comments, or contact us on Facebook or email.

Thank you all for reading, I hope to hear from you!
