A window into the past
Monday, July 17, 2017
The Goshen County Homesteaders Museum in Torrington gives us a window into Wyoming’s fascinating past. Housed in a 1926 Union Pacific Train Depot, it hosts historical information and artifacts as well as genealogy resources dating from Goshen County’s first settlement in 1834 to 1976.
At the museum, you can find out more about the area’s rich homesteading tradition as well as how the sugar beet industry, farming and ranching influenced the area. See Goshen County’s first car, an original homestead shack, a one-room schoolhouse and more.
Admission is free and there’s programming for people of all ages to enjoy. With rotating exhibits, archives, interactive displays and more, there’s always something to learn. https://www.facebook.com/HomesteadersMuseum/
