How can people see historical buildings in Casper?

We encourage seeing the beauty of historic buildings in person. Our walking tours and list of historic buildings make it easy to take in Casper’s history. In addition, the Western History Center and the Fort Caspar Museum feature historic photograph collections for public viewing.

What are the walking tours in Casper?

The CHPC has published a historic walking tour brochure that shows many of the historic buildings in the downtown area. The CHPC is currently working on updating the brochure and plans to print more copies, as well as develop a virtual walking tour as a smart-phone app.
