Established in 1897, incorporated in January of 1899, and located in southwest Wyoming, Kemmerer has been a coal-mining community for over 100 years. Kemmerer became the county seat for Lincoln County in 1911 when Uinta County, one of Wyoming’s original five counties, was divided. James Cash Penney opened the first J. C. Penney store in Kemmerer on April 12, 1902. During the 1920s, the Kemmerer area became a large center for moonshining and a large supplier of liquor for Chicago and the Midwest. This ended when Prohibition was repealed in 1933. The rich deposits of fossils in the area have long been a point of interest for paleontologists and geologists, amateur and professional, giving Kemmerer the title “Fossil Fish Capital of the World.”

About the Author:

Judy Julian has chosen images from the Fossil Country Museum archives, where she is the museum director. The building was purchased in 1988 from the Latter-day Saints Church with a farm loan grant. On June 1, 1989, the Fossil Country Museum was dedicated by state officials. The museum archives and gallery exhibits have grown over the last 20 years and include a replica underground coal mine, mining equipment, a bootlegging display, and a J. C. Penney exhibit. All photographs were donated to the museum from area families.

Review:

Title: Museum gets Hotel Kemmerer signage; new Kemmerer book out

Author: Little Chicago Review

Publisher: Little Chicago Review

Date: 6/10/09
The Kemmerer Fossil Country Museum has received the sign from the Hotel Kemmerer and bar on Monday and hopefully, Judy Julian, Director of the Museum and Suzanne Giorgis, volunteer, can have it ready for the museum's 20th Anniversary this Friday, June 12th.
They have run into just small problem, they aren't sure how the bar goes together. Julian is sending out a plea to anyone who can remember what the back bar looked like to please come in and give them help.
Julian has recently published a book about the area "Images of America." The book should be at the museum this week for purchase. In it, the Hotel Kemmerer is featured and the information Julian compiled is as follows:
"Construction of the Hotel Kemmerer began in 1897, but there were several delays caused by financial problems and the cold winter weather. The hotel was completed and opened for business in August 1898 under the ownership of Robert White. Native stone used to build the hotel was cut from the nearby stone quarry located in Oakley, just south of Kemmerer. The hotel was the first hotel to be built in the community. Shortly after the town of Kemmerer was incorporated and a town council appointed, the first town meeting was held in the hotel on February 28, 1899. The hotel was able to weather economic booms and busts. Livestock and coal production, the foundation of Kemmerer's economy, provided enough stability for the hotel to survive. This gave her the nickname the "Grand Old Lady."'
For more information on various historical subjects, the museum can give you the instite you are looking for.
Julian joins a number of local area authors and is a Kemmerer native.
