Dave Johnston Power Plant

This June 1973 photo from the U.S. National Archives shows the Dave Johnston Power Plant near Glenrock. Commissioned in 1958, the plant is named for W.D. “Dave” Johnston, the former company vice president who accepted the suggestion of Glenrock town leaders to consider locating the plant there to prompt a rebound for the economically depressed community.
