August 18, 2020, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM @ Campbell County Rockpile Museum
Monthly meeting of the Rockpile Museum board of directors.
August 20, 2020, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM @ Rockpile Museum
Matt Avery will visit the Rockpile Museum, August 20-21, 2020, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and 1:00 p.m. to 5 p.m. as an artist-in-residence. During his two-day visit, he will demonstrate his leatherwork techniques while chatting with visitors.
Matt was born in Sheridan Wyoming. Matt has always been around cattle
and horses and his Dad taught him a lot about saddle tack and how to take
care of it. His Father held onto every little piece of leather as it often came in
handy for repairing saddle tack later. Mr. Avery encouraged Matt to take up 4-H leather craft in high school and his love for leather work went from there to where it is today, with Matt owning his own saddle shop. Matt said, “Dad would probably turn over in his grave if he saw how much scrap leather I throw away." Matt’s biggest call is for saddle tack; he also makes some belts, purses, earrings, etc. He has built around 50 saddles to date.

Nellie Tayloe Ross, known as The Governor Lady, will return from history to speak to visitors at the Rockpile Museum on Monday, August 24, at 7:00 pm. The program, featuring actress Kay Sebring-Roberts Kuhlmann as the nation’s first elected woman governor, is offered jointly by Campbell County Historical Society, Campbell County Rockpile Museum, and the Wyoming State Historical Society. This event is free of charge.
Elected in a 1924 Wyoming special election, at the age of 48 and for a term of two years (1925-27), Governor Tayloe Ross served only that term, then became a magazine columnist and nationally famous traveling professional speaker. In 1932, President Franklin Roosevelt named her Director of the U.S. Mint, a position she held for 20 years.
