SUBLETTE COUNTY – The Sommers Homestead Living History Museum will hold its seventh Annual Open House on Sunday, Sept. 3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and celebrate Sublette County cowboys named to the Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame.

This is the last chance to tour the 100-plus-year-old Homestead for this season. There will be a free lunch of delicious home-cooked food starting at noon – don’t be late! With the beef there will be favorite family recipes of potatoes, beans, breads, salads and homemade pies.

The Sommers Homestead Living History Museum interprets the early settlement and ranching history of the Upper Green River Valley of Wyoming from the late 1800s to mid 1900s. It is all-volunteer run and admission during the season is by donation. The historical site opened in 2011 and is a cooperative project of the Sublette County Historical Society, Green River Valley Museum and siblings Jonita and Albert Sommers.

Country-western musician Jared Rogerson will be on hand during the open house playing live music and singing during the day.

At 1 p.m. will be the presentation honoring the Sublette County 2016 inductees into the Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame – Ira and Edna McWilliams, Robert “Bert” Harvey, and Norm Richie. The Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame honors Wyoming’s rich working cowboy and ranching history by each year highlighting the outstanding cowboys and cowgirls who broke the first trails and introduced the ranching and cowboy culture to the state.  Inductees are nominated and must have spent the majority of their lives in Wyoming with at least 45 years in the saddle with ranching, riding, and cowboy skills.
