Wednesday in Wyoming -- March 14, 2018

Remember the addition at the back of the J.C. Penney home? This enclosed porch is part of it. If you look closely, you'll see that the "paneling" on the walls comes from shipping crates. How's that for recycling or reuse?

Wednesday in Wyoming -- March 7, 2018

One of the highlights of Kemmerer is the J.C. Penney homestead, which has been turned into a museum. Although it's very attractive with its porch and spindle-work trim, the original part of the house is small. Tall people need to duck their heads in the upstairs room.

A side view shows you that the house was built in stages, being expanded as the family grew. (Notice the unmatched siding.)

Are you surprised at how modest a home this was for a man like Mr. Penney?
