The Helper Western Mining & Railroad Museum and the community celebrated the grand re-opening of their museum and new addition on Friday afternoon. The celebration also welcomed in the Lincoln exhibition that will be on display for the next month.

The exhibit features articles, letters and information about president Abraham Lincoln. Only one museum in each state was chosen to host this exhibit and Helper got the honors for the state of Utah.

The event featured remarks from guest speaker, Lt. Gov. Gary Bell.

The crowd was also entertained with music played by the 7th infantry Regimental Brass Band out of Logan. The band was dressed in period clothing and played music popular during the civil war era.

After the ribbon cutting, the public was invited in to tour the facility and the exhibit and an art show featuring works by many of the area's prominent artists. The Lincoln exhibit has overflowed into the Rio Theater because some of it was too big to fit into the Helper Museum

Carbon County residents are encouraged to come and see this unique piece of history before it ends. The exhibit is free and open to the public through July 16.
