This collection contains two documents, Community Treasures of Green River and Community Treasures of Rock Springs. These were originally prepared as PowerPoint presentations as part of “Community Treasures,” a program to help Green River and Rock Springs residents identify and protect places of special importance to the heritage of their communities. The project was carried out by the University of Wyoming’s American Studies program under the supervision of Mary Humstone. Project partners were the Green River Historic Preservation Commission, the Sweetwater County Historical Museum and the Rock Springs Historical Museum.
The presentations tell the stories of these two Sweetwater County communities from their founding in 1868 until the present, by focusing on the physical evidence—the historic buildings, structures and places that remain. These presentations are available in PowerPoint format from the Sweetwater County Historical Museum.
