Press Release – You are invited to “Mysteries on the Mezzanine” at the Campbell County Rockpile Museum on July 31st at 5:30 p.m. The Rockpile Museum Association’s summer intern Elizabeth Niles will give a presentation about her experience working in Collections at the Rockpile Museum. Working with over 600 objects, many of which required extensive research, Elizabeth has kicked off the long-term process of completing a full inventory of over 33,000 objects, photographs, books, and archival records at the Rockpile Museum.

The internship program is supported by the Rockpile Museum Association and funded by various local donors. Elizabeth was selected from a group of national candidates. She graduated from Gillette College with an Associate of Arts degree in History in 2017 and is currently pursuing a degree in History at Black Hills State University, with minors in American Indian Studies and Library Media. Through photographing unique objects, cataloguing objects with museum collections software, and researching metalwork and agricultural equipment, Elizabeth has developed a deeper understanding of local history as well as a broad range of skills that she can build upon as she progresses in her career.
