(FCM / Pitchengine Communities) * (Riverton, Wyo.) - The Riverton Museum has updated an exhibit that has been in the museum for a number of years. Originally called the Trapper exhibit that showcased the tools of local trapper Jake Korell, the exhibit has been updated to reflect the gathering of rendezvous that occurred on the Wind River in 1830 and 1838. The exhibit now details about the fur trade in the early 1800s. "The original exhibit had been up for quite a few years and was in serious need of updating. The items now in the Rendezvous case are related to the 1830 and the 1838 Rendezvous, and gives descriptions of the rendezvous held on the confluence of the Wind Rivers. We are very excited to have this new exhibit up." stated curator Karline Stetler The new Rendezvous exhibit is located in the Main Hall of the Riverton Museum. One item of note is a .50 Cal. percussion cap muzzle loader, on loan from the Wind River Heritage Center. "Working with the Heritage Center is a great partnership, and we hope that we can continue the support that we give each other." states Karline Stetler. #county10 #news
