The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) will host “Steve Johnston: Local Wyoming License Plate Collector”, at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 21, 2018.


As part of a temporary exhibit running through April 27, Johnston will discuss the history of Wyoming license plates and share his collecting stories. He will then take viewers to the Edna Kennell Heritage Gallery and highlight his collection.

“Wyoming license plates record the population explosion that occurred in the early 1900’s,” says Johnston. “This talk will include the different types of license plates Wyoming has come up with as a result of the different needs of our specialized society.”

The exhibit is available for viewing during business hours and includes more than a century’s worth of plates. The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center is free and currently open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.

We encourage anyone interested in Wyoming license plates, their unique history or the collection process, to attend this special presentation.

For more information, please contact Jason Vlcan at the NHTIC, (307) 261-7780.
