History of the Rock

The hubbin and I went on a recent outing to explore our local museum. It was surprisingly interesting to learn about history of the Rock. 

We saw a coal miners' $.18 paycheck in 1930...

and walked through the Rock Springs jail which was still in use until the 1980's. 

The isolation cell was pri-tty creepy. A woman told me the walls were padded to prevent injuries of the mentally ill who were placed in solitary confinement. 

What a bummer.

We examined old fire extinguishers...

and dentist's chairs. Praise the Lord for modern medicine!

We got a pretty good laugh out of this sign...

and ended our tour riveting like Rosie. 

So there it is. The history of the Rock in 11 pictures.
