The J.C. Penney House in downtown Kemmerer, now a museum, was added in 1976 to the National Register of Historic Places. Although visitors only need about an hour to explore this site, it is well worth their time. It is well kept, and the curator is generous with her time as well as knowledgeable about the region’s history. The museum is located at 722 JC Penny Drive, Kemmerer, WY. For more information call 307-877-3164. The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 4:30 pm, and Sunday 11 am to 4 pm.
