Archaeology Awareness Month

September is Archaeology Awareness Month! The Sweetwater Mines Historic District located near Lander, Wyoming is featured on this year’s poster. The discovery of the Carissa Lode launched the South Pass gold rush, the largest of Wyoming’s 19th century gold mining booms. The Carissa sat at the center of mining development, serving as the primary economic force for the region. To coincide with the celebration of Wyoming Archaeology Awareness Month, a special exhibit on mining in the South Pass City area has been developed by staff from the Wyoming State Historic Preservation Office: Wyoming State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails; and the Office of the Wyoming State Archaeologist. The exhibit will be on display in the Barrett Building lobby at 2301 Central Avenue, Cheyenne, through the fall of 2014. Click here for more information on Archaeology Awareness Month and how to obtain a poster.
