A Peek into Local History
Jul 2017 • Solo
I stopped by the museum one lazy, summer Saturday. A look around the museum properties reveals local family history, town lore, and the hidden treasures of the land and those who settled it. For a small donation, guests learn about pioneers, miners, black gold, and dinosaur fossils. To better understand the region, pay a visit to this museum.

Stop at all early native Rock Art signs on Douglas Pass road (co.139) then visit the Rangely Museum for explanations.

This place has grown from one building which was an original school house in the early ranching and oil discovery days, to four buildings full of items well marked and documented from early Native American displays to modern day oil/energy field information. The reading choices include local oral histories told in their own words of earlier times in Rio Blanco, Moffat & Garfield Counties. There are various dinosaur displays to wet your appetite for the Dinosaur trek which travels from Grand Junction Co to Vernal Utah. There is a nice park located close by the museum so plan on spending the entire morning here and having lunch just steps away.

If you plan your trip around "September Fest" your two day week end will include an old fashioned ice cream social at the museum which includes old churned flavors for judging.
