Fremont County has a rich history. Beginning in prehistoric times, many have made this area their home - ancient peoples, American Indians, and - through Western Migration - the white man. This tour concerns itself with the settling of the Riverton area by means of its historic buildings.

Build a brighter future for our past

"The Riverton Museum cares for some amazing artifacts, archival material and photographs. There is such a wonderful story to tell in regard to industry, agriculture, Native American Culture and the development of Western Wyoming. It is long past time we put a priority on those collections and those stories by significantly improving the quality of care, presentation, facility and location. We need a quality facility we can be proud of, that adds value to the community and is accessible to the visiting public"
