Rock Art in Wyoming
Hand-drawn and carved images created in Wyoming’s distant past are explored in a new exhibit at the Campbell County Rockpile Museum. “Rock Art in Wyoming” will be on view through June 3, 2023.
For thousands of years, people left messages and designs on rocks. Explore the history and imagery of rock art from across the state and see the many different styles and types. This traveling exhibit was created by the Fort Caspar Museum, Greer Services Archeology Counseling, and the Wyoming Archaeological Society. The Rockpile Museum and the Pumpkin Buttes Chapter of the Wyoming Archaeological Society are proud to bring “Wyoming Rock Art” to Gillette!
Please visit the Rockpile Museum’s website at www.rockpilemuseum.com or call (307) 682-5723 for more information. The Rockpile Museum is located at 900 West 2nd Street in Gillette, Wyoming.

Back To Business
Limited communication methods in the earliest years of Campbell County meant that business owners needed to find innovative ways to market their establishments. From matchbooks and toy trucks to key rings and calendars, advertising methods have been creative and plentiful over the past century. Advertising is meant to persuade, and the themes and techniques that were used in advertising reveal a part of the nation's history.
Created in conjunction with the Smithsonian traveling exhibit, “The Way We Worked,” this display highlights the expansive and rapidly changing business history of Campbell County. Often following the boom and bust cycles of the region, a wide range of businesses have operated in Campbell County, including nearly 100 cafés and restaurants, more than four dozen hotels and motels, and a realm of grocers and gas stations.
