Over 100 people gathered to view the grand opening of the museum's new exhibit "Blood and Treasure on the Frontier." The day began with a flag raising ceremony and continued with the traditional ribbon- cutting.
Reenactments of blacksmiths, gunfighters and hunters took place in the courtyard, reminding us of the simplicity of how life used to be.
"If we don't remember where we came from, it's hard to have an identity of who we are, and where to go in the future. We can learn so much from the people that came before and their ingenuity," says Rachel Smith.
If you didn't get a chance to see the new exhibit on Saturday, the museum will be open on Sunday from one to five.
