POWELL -- The Wyoming State Library has created an online exhibit commemorating life at the Heart Mountain Relocation Center.
The exhibit uses stories from the camp newspaper, The Heart Mountain Sentinel, and images from the digital collections of the American Heritage Center. The exhibit and fully digitized, searchable issues of the Sentinel is online at http://newspapers.wyo.gov/heart-mountain.
“Reading through the Heart Mountain Sentinel gives you a sense of the everyday activities at the camp,” said Thomas Ivie, Wyoming State Library research and statistics librarian. “It certainly isn’t the whole story, but it does provide details that might not be recorded anywhere else.”
