 About Us

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.

A gift shop and picnic space are available to visitors. The museum also provides event space for a variety of activities. If you are interested, contact the museum.
