On July 9th, the Campbell County Rockpile Museum is opening its newest exhibition titled Women Coal Miners of the Powder River Basin. Featuring the photographs of Colorado artist Annalise Shingler, this exhibit tells the story of a handful of women miners from Gillette and Campbell County.

Some women are trailblazers that have worked for 30 or more years in mining while others are just beginning their careers. Others are from families with multiple generations working in the coal mines. With this exhibit the Rockpile Museum hopes to shed some light on the hard work and sacrifice that these miners make to support their families and provide energy for our state and our nation.
