National Historic Trails Center | Western & Plains History Exhibits Casper, WY

The National Historic Trails Center is a favorite place to visit for families, couples and individuals alike. During your visit you will be able to explore exhibits related to names that are truly legendary in Western history – the Oregon, California, Mormon and Pony Express Trails. Through these exhibits we capture the real-life drama that the half-million pioneer emigrants experienced as they followed these trails between 1841 and 1868. We are a non-profit organization and all exhibits are owned, maintained and upgraded by the Foundation.

Each year the Foundation hosts the Taste of Wyoming Celebrity Chef Cook-Off which has become one of Casper’s premier fundraising events. The event is held outdoors at the National Historic Trails Center which features breathtaking panoramic views of the city. Guests at the event will enjoy an evening of spirits, culinary delights prepared by Casper’s finest chefs, live entertainment and more. We hope that you will save the date for the 2014 Celebrity Chef Cook-Off. Click here for more information.
