The Wyoming State Library will be closed Thursday, November 23, for the Thanksgiving holiday. We will be open our normal hours on Friday, November 24.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are four populated places named after the holiday’s traditional main course: Turkey Creek CDP, Arizona (405 residents in 2015); Turkey city, Texas (367); Turkey Creek village, Louisiana (357); and Turkey town, North Carolina (280). Although the Equality State isn’t on the list with a turkey-themed town, Wyoming Places lists a Turkey Hollow (valley) in Carbon County, and the U.S. Board on Geographic Names lists three Turkey Creeks in Wyoming, among other locations.
