"Key Ingredients: America by Food" is the current display at the Paul Smith Children's Village. The exhibit is brought to you by the Smithsonian Institutions and the Wyoming Humanities Council. The display walks people through how kitchen gadgets, technological advances, and community demographics have changed with our food preferences.
If you're wondering what Cheyenne has to do with this, think about the railroad. The completion of the transcontinental railroad allowed the Capitol City to become an important stopping point for bringing food from the west coast to the east coast and back. This meant people could access foods through all seasons.
The exhibit is not just for adults, there are items for kids as well such as the Pillsbury Doughboy and the California Raisins.
"America by Food" will be on display through March 10th. It is free and open to the public.
