John Merrit and C.W. Eads established the town of Casper in 1888, and since that time, it has grown by leaps and bounds. Pick up a self-guided tour program from the VisitCasper Welcome Center and discover this for yourself. Begin with the Downtown Tour, where you’ll find buildings much as they were when first built in the early 1900s and 1920s. Follow that with a tour of the South Wolcott Historic District, where you’ll see stunning architecture ranging from Colonial Revival to Tudor to American Foursquare / Prairie to Craftsman / Bungalow. End your tour with a look at some of Casper’s other historic buildings, markers and monuments.
