AWHC:American West Heritage Center

In celebration of our Fur Trapper/Mountain Man week we went to the AWHC for our Friday Ride. Although the Center is a very large working historical farm, they have a beautiful (FREE!) Welcome Center that is very accessible. It has a little museum that talks all about the pioneers, indians, and other significant people and history of our valley. There is beautiful art to see, a fun gift shop, and a Bison watching deck! We had a wonderful time! The building itself is beautiful, and worth just seeing the construction. If you have a moment stop by and see this amazing building, and museum….. if you have more than a moment and can get around a little easier, stop and explore the entire working farm! See all kinds of animals, farming equipment, ride a little train, and explore the buildings! You won’t be disappointed!
