There will be a bus leaving the museum at 9:30 am and returning at 12:30 if you would prefer a ride instead of bringing your own vehicle. Please sign up through Sublette BOCES to ensure a seat (look at bottom right of this page to register).
Directions:

Background:

This project restored and reinvented the Trappers Point Overlook historic site monument and signs. The 10-acre site is owned and managed by the Sublette County Historical Society. It was dedicated in 1968 and is approaching its 50th anniversary. Trappers Point started in 1968 as a location to overlook a newly established National Landmark, the Upper Green River Rendezvous Grounds where six mountain man rendezvous were held from 1833-1840. Fifty years later the location has become a great place to overlook two other National Register of Historic Places sites: the Green River Drift and Trappers Point Archaeology.  All three sites are of national significance.  After 50 years, the overlook was showing signs of wear.  It needed to be modernized while still respecting its own heritage and adding interpretation of the newly designated historic resources.
