Groundbreaking ceremony for Wild Mustang Center
Ground broke on Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center

Thursday, March 17, 2005
By KARLA POMEROY / The Lovell Chronicle

Thirty-seven years ago the wild horses east of Lovell became part of the first ever federal wild horse range when the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range was designated, protecting the Spanish heritage horses. Saturday, another big step was taken for the horses with the breaking of ground for the first building in the Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center.

About 20 people braved the cold, wind and snow for the groundbreaking on the Mustang Center property adjacent to the National Park Service Visitor Center east of Lovell. The groundbreaking was held at the east end of the property where a 24-foot by 36-foot log building will be constructed to house some displays and the temporary headquarters of the center until the main facility can be built.

Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center Board President John Nickle said, "This is a landmark day. This groundbreaking ceremony signifies the start of the first building." He said along with the log building a 70-foot by 200-foot parking lot will be constructed with a one-way entrance and exit so buses can pull into the parking lot.

Mayor Bruce Morrison said, "This all started when we were teens. We loved to chase those horses, and I always wanted to rope one. The horse range was designated and 40 years later we’re moving forward again."
