The newly re-formed Johnson County Historical Society will offer this month's presentation this Wednesday, March 12th at 6:30 pm at the Johnson County Library.
Geologist/paleontologist Dr. Randolph Moses will be the speaker and will present the geological history of the Trailside area of the Big Horn Mountains.
Recognized for the uniqueness of the geology, the Bighorn uplift is known for its crustal displacement which reveals rocks that range in age from the Archean to Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic eras (3.8 billion years to 10,000 years ago).
Moses' presentation will be followed by a group participation in the stories of Trailside, a home and business located eight miles west of Buffalo.
The business operated in the area from the 1930s to the early 1970s.
Sylvia Bruner, with the Historical Society, tells us more about how the organization was reborn.
Historical Society meetings are open to the public. As a chapter of the Wyoming State Historical Society, members have access to statewide information and documents.
