CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming State Museum is expanding its 125th anniversary of statehood exhibit to focus on the 1930s.

That decade included the Great Depression, the worst economic slump industrialized countries ever experienced.

The exhibit, at the state museum in Cheyenne, features a used bit used in trona production. The world’s largest deposit of trona, which is used in the production of glass, was discovered in Sweetwater County in 1939.

The museum is located at 2301 Central Avenue in Cheyenne. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday and admission is free.
