October 19, 2021 — The Sweetwater County Historical Museum’s special exhibit at the Green River Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center, “Crossroads: Change in Rural America,” will have its last day this Thursday, October 21.
Presented in cooperation with Wyoming Humanities/thinkWY and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, “Crossroads” examines the evolving landscape of rural America. The display includes special banners that feature Sweetwater County’s communities, including Rock Springs, Green River, Superior, Point of Rocks, Wamsutter, Little America, Granger, McKinnon-Washam, Bairoil, Farson-Eden, and Reliance.
To date, over 1,300 people have visited the exhibit since it opened on September 11. The Visitor’s Center is currently on winter hours, which are Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM. There is no charge for admission.
Museum Director Dave Mead explained that “Crossroads” is a traveling exhibit and is closing two days early due to scheduling conflicts and shipping issues. The exhibit is set for display at five other communities in Wyoming through June 18, 2022.
