•  Red Arrow  Downtown Casper Historic District:
A proposed Downtown Casper Historic District (map here) will be considered by the State and the National Parks Service for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. Listing a property in the National Register provides recognition of the property’s historic significance; however, it does not restrict the right of the owner to use, develop, maintain, or sell the property. On June 9th the State Review Board will discuss the eligibility of the district and make recommendations to the State Historic Preservation Office before a final application is submitted to the National Parks Service. Property owners in downtown are encouraged to call the State Historic Preservation Office regarding this nomination at 307-777-8594, or send comments to:

 

State Historic Preservation Office

2301 Central Ave., Barrett Bldg. 3rd Floor

Cheyenne, WY 82002
