GREEN RIVER — Students from the Granger School got a special guided tour of the Sweetwater County Historical Museum on Wednesday.

The tour included exhibits on prehistoric life in Sweetwater County, Native Americans, the mountain men, frontier-era emigrants, ranching, mining, and the railroad.

Of particular interest to the group was Overland Stage Trail exhibit, as Granger is home to the Granger Station State Historic Site, a Wyoming state park dedicated to the Overland Trail and the Pony Express.
