The Rim Country Museum and Zane Grey Cabin are celebrating the 100-year anniversary of Zane Grey occupying his cabin in Rim Country.

Zane Grey first visited the area in 1918 to hunt and to research his book about the Pleasant Valley War (To the Last Man). He purchased land from the Haught family to build a hunting cabin. The first time Zane Grey used the Cabin was in October of 1921.

For the 100th anniversary celebration, all Zane Grey merchandise (books, apparel, gift items, etc.) in the Rim Country Museum Gift Shop will be discounted 20% from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m., Friday, Oct. 15 and Saturday, Oct. 16.

Tours of the Rim Country Museum and the Zane Grey replica Cabin are available at the same time.
