The best place to start a walking tour of Green River is at the Sweetwater County Historical Museum, at 3 West Flaming Gorge Way—State Route 374, the main east-west artery through town. At the museum, a person can pick up a brochure published by the City of Green River for directions to historic buildings and saloons, Union Pacific Railroad facilities, and even haunted houses. The museum includes a large collection of coal mining artifacts and coal-mine-related historic photos. FMI: (307) 872-6435.
