The Johnson County Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum will present their annual “Living History Day” this coming Saturday at the museum complex near the historic courthouse.

In addition to free admission to see the regular exhibits at the museum, there will be activities such as gold panning, flint-knapping, music, faro dealing and many other fun and educational exhibits to enjoy.

Museum Educator Jennifer Romanoski, with the Jim Gatchell Museum, tells us what Living History Day is all about.

This year there will be a featured exhibit on the Wyoming State Flag, honoring the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the flag designed by Buffalo native Verna Keays-Keyes.

The Living History Day will be presented this coming Saturday from 9 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon.

Refreshments will be available during the celebration.

For more information, contact Jennifer at the museum at 684-9331.
