About the Author

Judy Julian has chosen images from the Fossil Country Museum archives, where she is the museum director. The building was purchased in 1988 from the Latter-day Saints Church with a farm loan grant. On June 1, 1989, the Fossil Country Museum was dedicated by state officials. The museum archives and gallery exhibits have grown over the last 20 years and include a replica underground coal mine, mining equipment, a bootlegging display, and a J. C. Penney exhibit. All photographs were donated to the museum from area families.
