The Museum of the Mountain Man was opened in 1990 by the Sublette County Historical Society, a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation. It is dedicated to preservation and education about the adventurous young men who were the first non-natives to stay in the mountains year round trapping for beaver in the 1820s and 1830ís. The Museum puts on many educational programs during the year including Living History Day attended by 1,000 fourth grade students from Western Wyoming each May; more than 35 programs during Green River Rendezvous Days each July telling the real story of the mountain men and Plains Indians; and the Rocky Mountain Fur Trade Journal, an annual peer-reviewed research publication. All programs are free and open to the public thanks to generous sponsors and donors. The Sublette County Historical Society also owns and manages the Sommers Homestead Living History Museum, Lander Trail New Fork River Crossing Historical Park, Trapperís Point, and the Green River Rendezvous Grounds in Daniel.
