With the construction of the transcontinental railroad, a large number of workers cut area timber to produce the railroad ties in work known as 'tie hacking.' Enjoy a free lecture on tie hack history at the Green River Valley Museum, 140 Front St. in Big Piney. This event is part of the Big Piney Library's month long exhibit The Way We Worked in Sublette County.
View all lectures, lunches, history and how-to workshops, and other events surrounding this exhibit on display from April 5th until May 5th at the Big Piney Library:
