The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center announces its annual living history special event. This year’s event, Wyoming Heritage Days, celebrates the 125th anniversary of Wyoming statehood.

The living history extravaganza will take place on Saturday, June 13th and Sunday, June 14th on the grounds of the Trails Center. Event hours will be 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. The event will be free, open to the public and includes free admission to the Trails Center on both days.

Visitors to the Trails Center during that weekend will be encouraged to visit with living history interpreters showcasing Wyoming history from 1820 to the early 1900’s. Fur traders, emigrants, topographical engineers, Native American re-enactors, Pony Express Riders and soldiers will all be on hand to help celebrate Wyoming’s magnificent past.
