OBJECTS FROM THE WENDOVER COLLECTION
The Historical Society of Deseret is pleased to present this first exhibition of a selection of objects from our Wendover collection, organized by Lazaros. The exhibition marks the first of many that will be housed in our new archive headquarters, located in the Center for Land Use Interpretation exhibition hall in Wendover, Utah. These artifacts all have provenance in Wendover or the surrounding environs, and each tells a specific story about this place.
