Five items found in Wyoming libraries and archives are among the finalists for the first-ever “Wyoming’s Most Significant Artifacts.” This program was launched by the Wyoming State Historical Society in partnership with the University of Wyoming Libraries in celebration of 125 years of Wyoming Statehood. It is intended to become an annual event.
This effort will identify some of our state’s most treasured artifacts. Out of 41 nominations received, 25 were selected as finalists. The top ten will be selected by public ballot. See all 25 here and vote for your 10 favorites. All 41 nominees will be displayed online when the “Top 10” are announced in October.
This morning’s Wyoming Tribune Eagle featured the finalists from Cheyenne on the front page of its print edition and on its website. Here, we feature the ones that come from the state’s libraries and archives.
