Sweetwater County Historical Museum

Sweetwater County Historical Museum

The museum has collections ranging from fossilized fish to native tribal spearheads. I has a large collection of items from the area’s days as a coal mining center in the 19th century, as well as railroad memorabilia from that period. Many of the exhibits focus on the daily life of the inhabitants of the county, from the native tribes and pioneers whose wagons crossed the county, to the soldiers and various workers who later settled in the region. It has a collection of artifacts representing the Rock Springs Chinatown from late 1800s.

We hope you enjoy our work.
