Dubois Museum: Wind River Historical Center Makes Improvements

    The Dubois Museum with the help of the Dubois Museum Association and other volunteers finished two great projects projects recently.  One, was the replacement of the old boardwalk and the other was the installation of new LED lighting with motion sensors in all the historic cabins. 

    All of these much needed repairs were made possible by volunteer help provided by the Dubois Museum Association and local grants. Various grants were awarded to the Dubois Museum Association that include: Wyoming Community Foundation, The Opportunity Shop, Never Sweat Recreation Board and Fremont County Recreation Board. The Dubois Museum was also awarded a grant from The Opportunity Shop.

    The crew of boardwalk volunteers included, Tom Lucas, Don and Cheryl Schlup, Doug Valentine, Betty Dolcater, John Angst and Mark Hinchburger. Homespun Electrical did an excellent job installing the lighting and going above and beyond to make the lighting a true asset to anyone’s experience in the cabins at the Dubois Museum. Connie Ticknor also volunteered on the lighting project.   "Thank you to the grant committees and everyone who volunteered with these projects, it would have never been done without you," Johanna Thompson VSC Dubois Museum.

    Restoration of the stage area in the back of the museum is scheduled to begin June 27th and should be completed for the annual fun filled Dubois Museum Day on July 16th.

    If you’re looking for a way to enjoy the day come rediscover the Dubois Museum & Wind River Historical Center, things keep changing for the better.  Check www.fremontcountymuseums.com for a complete schedule of events at all three Fremont County Museums.
