150th Anniversary Designating Wyoming as an Official Territory in the U.S.

By  | 

The National Interpretive Trails Center exhibit commemorates the 150th anniversary of Wyoming's designation as a territory in the United States. Before 1868, staff say there was not a territory, governor, or cabinet appointed. During this time, The Union Pacific Railroad was completed across the formerly new territory in Wyoming.

"That's not a coincidence," says Reid Miller of the Interpretive Center.
"The territory was established to accommodate the administration of the railroad to an extent, and Congress saw that need throughout the route of the transcontinental railroad."

Staff invite us to come see this exhibit throughout July.
