On the hunt for Easter eggs in front of the Jim Baker cabin

The Savery Museum (formerly the Savery Schoolhouse) hosts many community events. The Museum is home to a number of historic buildings from around the Little Snake River Valley. The centerpiece of these historic structures is Mountain Man Jim Baker’s original cabin. Jim Baker was a trapper and a trader. After traveling much of the West in the beaver trapping and settlement era, he chose the Little Snake River Valley as his home. His cabin is now located at the Museum, not far from where it was originally built, but it spend a number of years on display in Cheyenne. It was returned to Savery in Wyoming’s Centennial year, 1990. Baker and many of his family members are buried on the hilltop just west of the Museum. Several of his family members still reside in the community.

The Museum provided the perfect setting for the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Lucky for the Bunny, Jim Baker and his rifle were nowhere to be seen. He would have been gratified to see happy children racing around.
