Hundreds of Salt and Pepper Shakers

Within the free Powell County Museum is an exhibit of hundreds of salt and pepper shakers. They belonged to a deceased woman in town and ultimately were donated. There isn't much information on any of the pieces, but it's a unique display. Other exhibits include your usual old stuff and an exhibit on trappers. Outside the building there is a setup of a pioneer town.

Call for hours; the museum website isn't up to date.
