The Anna Miller Museum, 401 Delaware Ave.: Newcastle, Wyo.’s status as a home base for a National Guard troop, first organized in 1899, led to the construction of an armory building. The troop became a cavalry troop in 1914. The sandstone stable, built in the mid 1930s, has been used since 1966 by the Weston County Historical Society to house Anna Miller Museum. The building was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.
Visitors won’t want to miss the varied collection of artifacts and memorabilia, including period rooms from the 1930s, the one-room Green Mountain Schoolhouse, model pioneer cabins, Cambria artifacts, fossils and a county store. Admission is free, and the museum is open year-round Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with additional hours on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon from June through August.
