Jim Bridger, Esther Morris are happy in their new digs

Sep 14, 2012 - Lew Diehl, Riverton


Old Jim Bridger, Jed Smith, Sacajawea and Esther Morris, led by Father De Smet and others were probably singing and dancing their new digs Sept 9.

The entire wax museum was moved from Joe Pepper's storage unit to the new Wind River Heritage Center building by a great group of volunteers with their pickups and trailers.

It will take awhile to get it all up for display in a pleasing, educational and historically accurate mode, but it will happen. You can help it happen.

Many thanks to Joe Pepper, Darrell Wolbert, Bruce Richardson, Hunter Lawson, Bridger Lawson, Corky Lawson, Kevin Harrington, Matt Harrington, Kyle Taylor, Pat Wolbert, Jake Korrell and Lenora Hanway,
