Wyoming’s next door neighbor Nebraska now has an official, state-approved Bigfoot museum, which we can all agree was the one thing the state was missing.
Last week, Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts proclaimed Oct. 21 as “Bigfoot Crossroads of America Day,” which celebrated the museum of the same name in Hastings, according to the Grand Island Independent.
Owner Harriet McFeely was officially named the “Nebraska Bigfoot Lady” and her partner Kenny Collins was named “Nebraska Bigfoot Guy,” titles we can only hope become popular in Wyoming. We believe Gov. Mark Gordon would support making such a declaration.
McFeely’s museum features a 60-year collection of artifacts. She educates visitors about Bigfoot and the research into the legendary creature, while sharing stories and testimonies from other Bigfoot believers.
According to Visit Hastings, McFeely’s goal is “to bring further knowledge and appreciation of this unique species of all Bigfoot believers and non-believers.” She has been a Bigfoot believer since childhood.
Skeptics and believers are both encouraged to visit the museum, which has only been open for about two years.
Colorado also has a Bigfoot-themed attraction, known as the Sasquatch Outpost. So this means Wyoming needs to get an alien museum up and running, pronto.
