Shoshone Mission Trek

The Pioneer Museum will host this Wind River Visitors Council Adventure Trek on August 6th from 10-noon.  Visit the historic mission founded by Father John Roberts, a Welsh missionary who came to the Lander Valley in 1883 to work among the Shoshone and Araphao. Learn the history of Roberts, Chief Washakie and the mission as we look through the historic structures on the grounds. The Sacajewea cemetery is nearby and we will visit that as well.
