I ALWAYS make it a habit to stop and visit places like these because I find that I NEVER KNOW ENOUGH about state history wherever I go. This place is NO exception. Being from the Northeast, the 13 original colonies are the selling point along with getting original independence. Out here, settling the territories and taming the West is the theme.
There was a LOT of information about the trek westward by settlers. There even was a great deal about the Mormon trail which went through more of Wyoming, where I live now, than Colorado. I saw MANY examples of how simple and HARSH it was back in the day. There were some souvenirs at the gift shop. I would recommend ALL travelers stop in for a visit and get educated.
