The Little Snake River Museum
The Little Snake River Museum is located in south-central Wyoming near the Colorado border in Savery. It was the Savery School for many years until 1972 when the Little Snake River Valley Schools were consolidated and all valley students were sent to Baggs. The main building houses several exhibits including the Dr. Noyes Room and the John Terrill Room. There are several more rooms brimming with various items from the Valley's past. Also on the grounds are other buildings from around the valley that reflect the history of the community. Outside is a barbecue unit and picnic tables. The public may use these facilities. Large tours or activities should be arranged for in advance.
Jim Baker's Cabin was located originally in the Little Snake River Valley near where Savery Creek empties into the Little Snake River. It was built in 1873 and was originally three stories high. The cabin stood by a spring and was located approximately midway of the distance across the Little Snake bottomland. This location allowed a commanding view of the area could be had and no sniper's bullet could be effective from the cover of the surrounding hills.
Strobridge-Groshart-Hays House located at the Little Snake River Museum house was built in 1882 by W. T. Morgan for Mr. Strobridge. The house was sold to Miles and Mary Groshart in about 1890. They raised five children here and also two grandchildren when their daughter died. The house was bought by bill and Mildred Hays in 1945 and later sold to Tom and Rusty Cobb in the late 1960's. The Cobb family donated it to the museum grounds on December 19, 1993. It has now been restored to the beautiful home it once was.
The Blair Cabin was the home of John and Emma Blair. It was built in 1882 and was located between Baggs and Dixon. The cabin was given to the museum by descendents of the Blairs and was moved to the museum grounds in 1987. The furnishings in the house belonged to the Blairs and were also donated by members of the family.
The Dutch Joe Schoolhouse was moved from Dutch Joe to the museum grounds. All eight grades were taught in its one room. There are old school books, original desks, blackboard, water bucket and such as was used in country schools during the 20's and 30's.
