“…ground zero for history buffs…”
The area quickly became a hot spot for energy development with a major refinery built just outside of town. Hard times hit after the Great Depression, but Casper experienced a major boost during WWII when the Casper Army Air Field housed 16,000 soldiers who trained at more than 400 buildings. Since, Casper has flourished as a retail, medical and energy-industry service hub for Wyoming and the region. As ground zero for history buffs who want to learn about the gritty lore and legends of the Old West, the development of the energy sector, WWII or more, Casper’s rich history has fascinating stories to tell.
