Reference: History: "New Interactive Website Explores Wyoming's Past"

From the Billings Gazette:

For the past couple of years, Rea has been working with historians all over the state to compile an encyclopedia of Wyoming history into a searchable, interactive website, WyoHistory.org. In collaboration with the Wyoming Historical Society and dozens of other organizations, Rea and web designer Steve Foster are making Wyoming history more lively and accessible through web-based tools that allow users to look back in time by searching a topic or clicking on a map or choosing stories from a digital timeline.


The website includes about 100 encyclopedia- and essay-type articles, edited by Rea and Lori Van Pelt, a writer and historian from Saratoga. Rea said he hopes to add another 200 articles by the end of 2012, setting the foundation for what must be a continually growing archive of Wyoming history.
