Fort Casper Museum To Host Traveling Photo Exhibit

Fort Casper Museum will host the University of Wyoming’s American Heritage Center’s photo exhibit titled,”Japanese-American Girl Scouts at Heart Mountain Relocation Center 1942-1945.” It will be on display through June 8, 2014.

After Pearl Harbor was bombed in 1941, people with Japanese ancestry-including U.S. citizens-were uprooted from their homes and relocated to camps in other regions of the country. The Heart Mountain Relocation Center, located between Powell and Cody, Wyoming, was home to more than 10,000 Japanese Americans from August 1942 to November 1945. World War II was a time of heightened nationalism, and scouting programs fit the image of patriotism for people who were eager to be seen as loyal Americans.

Fort Casper will present two programs to coincide with the exhibit.

 On Saturday, May 3rd, we will hold the FCMA’s Spring Lunch & Learn featuring a presentation on “The History of Girl Scouts in Wyoming 7 Montana” with Desiree Young.  The optional lunch will begin at noon (reservations required; call the Museum for details), and the presentation will begin at 1:00pm.   On Saturday, May 24th, you are invited to participate in the May Fremont Family Funday workshop: “Paper Cranes and Girl Scout Crafts.”  This is hands-on, drop-in workshop will be held between 1:00 and 3:00 pm; no reservations are required, and all supplies will be provided.  This program is free with paid museum admission and open to guests of all ages, but children must be accompanied by an adult.   In May, Fort Caspar Museum’s hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm daily.  Admission prices are $3for adults; $2 for youth (ages 13-18 years); and FREE for children (12 years and younger) and for Museum members.  For more information, call the Museum at 307-235-8462, or visit our website at  Fort Caspar Museum is located at 4001 Fort Caspar
