Carbon County Museum
Carbon County is a treasure trove of history, with tales of legend and lore waiting to be discovered. One of the best ways to start exploring the colorful history of this area is by visiting the various community museums that offer a glimpse into the past.
Little Snake River Museum
Originally, the main Little Snake River Museum building and property belonged to the Savery School. Once schools consolidated in Baggs in 1972, Carbon County School District 1 donated the building to the community for the creation of the museum and to host different events. Now, the school houses numerous exhibits, with five of the retired classrooms now educating visitors on Snake River history through displays. Over the years, numerous historic buildings have joined the museum. Everything on display was either donated or is on loan. The efforts of many individuals built the museum into what it is today.
