Spring 2017 – Spring 2018, the Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum is presenting:

Wyoming’s Betsy Ross: Verna Keays Keyes


Uniform Stories


Verna Keays had just returned home from art school when the Daughters of the American Revolution put out a call for designs for a state flag. When Verna’s entry was selected, she won $20 from the DAR and secured a priceless place in Wyoming’s history.

Come see Wyoming’s Betsy Ross: Verna Keays Keyes and learn about the Wyoming state flag and the woman who designed it- plus other Wyoming state symbols.  The exhibit will open May 18, 2017 and will remain open until spring 2018.  We hope to see you here!
