Bonnie the Brine Shrimp is our new kid’s character at the museum. She is a smart, spunky brine shrimp. Named after the Lake Bonneville, she has a lot to teach people about the Great Salt Lake.
We have hundreds of pictures of local people and places. Some of them have yet to be identified. The Rotary Club members helped us put names to faces to make it easier to use the photos for research and exhibits.
We also have a local history reference collection at the museum where we store information we find on a variety of local history topics. The Rotary Club also helped us clip articles to add to our reference files.
This our newest addition to the Lawn Gnomes 2020 exhibit!
