Our headquarters in Lander, Wyoming:
The Fremont County Pioneer Association was the first organization of its type in Wyoming, and has a rich history:
Pioneers in the area organized to preserve their history in 1886;
Wyoming's first and oldest museum was built by Pioneers - a log cabin that still stands on the grounds of the Museum of the American West;
Today's Fremont County Pioneer Association members continue to preserve the history of Fremont County by holding fund raisers, applying for grants, working on historical research projects and volunteering at the Fremont County Pioneer Museum and the Museum of the American West.
