Riverton Museum Installs New “Riverton Hero’s” Exhibit at Riverton Library

The Riverton Library contains an exhibit organized by the Riverton Museum near the entrance that rotates on a six month basis.  The current exhibit on display at the library honors the local heroes of Riverton who served our country in the military.

This exhibit features uniforms from four of the branches of the United States military which were worn by local Riverton heroes.  One uniform was the United States Army uniform worn by Laurence J. Olheiser who was the former manager of the Riverton City Campground and former Post Commander at the Riverton VFW.  This exhibit also includes blown up images from the Riverton Museum’s photograph collection and from newspaper clippings gathered from the Riverton Ranger.

One photograph pulled from the museum’s collection is a colorized photograph believed to be of Herman F. Stratton who served in the Air Force in World War II.
