Lady Bird Johnson was present for the dedication of Flaming Gorge Dam. After the dedication, she went to Antelope Flats and took a boat ride on Flaming Gorge Resevoir. After that, she went to Green River Wyoming for a BBQ. This is going off of memory from a visit to the dam... I will have to look up what month and year. August 17th, 1964. Found it in an old Deseret Newspaper...http://news.google.com/newspapers?ni...g=7146,3213504

Benton, Wyoming

Quote:
Benton was Wyoming Territory's first ghost town. Benton, 11 miles east of present day Rawlins at UP milepost 672.1, lasted only three months from July to September 1868, and attained a population of 3,000. During that period, however, it provided an interesting contrast. On one hand, it had twenty-five saloons and five dance halls. During its brief existence, reputedly over 100 souls met their Maker in gunfights. One visitor referred to Benton as "nearer a repetition of Sodom and Gomorrah than any other place in America."
