ROCKPILE MUSEUM TO SHOWCASE MAPS AND AERIAL PHOTOS OF GILLETTE SINCE 1925

The Campbell County Rockpile Museum is pleased to introduce a new exhibit, “Small Town to Boom Town: Growth & Good Fortune in Gillette, Wyoming”, located on the Roy Lowell Memorial Exhibition Wall in the Museum’s annex building. This exhibit showcases a series of maps and aerial photos of Gillette, beginning in 1925 and ending right before the turn of the century in 1997. The maps and photos feature the growth of Gillette during the “boom era” of the 1970’s and includes a display of photographs spotlighting a few key additions as it transformed from a rural town into a booming urban city.

“Small Town to Boom Town” is on display at the Campbell County Rockpile Museum, located at 900 W 2nd St, Gillette, WY.
