“The Scottish heritage of Fremont County’s upper country,” is the next program in the Wyoming Community Bank Speaker’s series at the Lander Pioneer Museum, Thursday, June 16, at 7 p.m.
The program, by Dubois Historian John Finley, explores the many Scottish emigrants to the area and how they influenced the culture of our area. Many were drawn here to work in the booming sheep industry. Finley will present a power point talk on the emigrants and the ranches and farms they started. The program was presented to an overflow crowd at the Dubois Museum last year.
The program is one of the Wyoming Community Bank Speakers Series at the museum. The series will feature speakers and programs on the area’s culture and history at all three county museums throughout the year. The programs are free and open to the public.
A whole series of events are set at the Lander Museum. Coming up next in June is an adventure trek to the Hudson coal mine area. For more information call the museum and 307-332-3373, on Facebook at: Pioneer Museum Lander Wyoming www.fremontcountymuseums.com
