An informational meeting was held late Wednesday afternoon at the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library Inner Circle to discuss the new Historic Mine Byway coming to Sheridan County the summer of 2012.

Over twenty folks were in attendance, and Historic Preservation Specialist Laura Nowlin explains what was presented.

Historically, coal mining has been one of the backbone industries of Sheridan County. The six interpretive signs will tell the story of the history of our area mining and the people who worked there.

Mary Hopkins, the Wyoming State Historic Preservation Officer, tells us.

The Historic Mine Byway will be located north of Sheridan giving visitors to our area the history of mineral development in the Acme/Monarch area.

Nominated by the Sheridan Land Trust, this will be the third Historic Mine Byway in Wyoming.
