Homestead hosting exhibit on African-American town

Homestead hosting exhibit on African-American town

  • Updated

A special exhibit on Empire, Wyoming will be on display at Homestead National Monument of America’s Education Center from the end of January to the last week of March 2019. Part of the exhibit, a collection of standing banners, has been lent to the Monument by the Wyoming State Museum in Cheyenne, and part of the exhibit comes from the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center in Casper, Wyoming.

Empire, Wyoming itself is no longer a town you can find on the map, but from 1908 until about the mid-1920s, Empire was a thriving agricultural community of African-American homesteaders in eastern Wyoming, near the present-day city of Torrington.
