Welcome Summer Season 2019!

From Our Executive Director

Welcome Visitors!

There is so much going on at the Interpretive Center this summer season.  Casper, Wyoming and the National Historic Trails Center Foundation welcome you to come participate!  Our amazing staff have planned youth programs, trail treks, living history events and patio talks--please see our calendar for more information. You'll always find the world-class exhibits here and our bookstore is filled with wonderful gift ideas and souvenirs.

In our third year with no entrance fee, we welcome everyone to stop in and tour this amazing facility today for FREE!  New temporary exhibits are being displayed all summer including an art installation and sale from Native American high school students here in Wyoming!  

There is always something fun and hands-on happening here at the Trails Center, so come up and experience the growth of our nation.

Best wishes,
Carrie O. Reece
Executive Director

  New Scrim in the Mormon Handcart Cold Room Theater
The scrim in the Cold Room theater of the Mormon Handcart Gallery was vandalized and in need of repair. The Foundation ordered new material, and Carol Thorup volunteered to sew the hems and pockets to make this piece ready for installation. Installation is COMPLETE! It looks wonderful! Maintenance is an important part of keeping world class exhibits ready for our visitors! Many THANKS to Jared Fleming who maintains this facility and Lance & Carol Thorup who generously donate their time!
  Volunteer Luncheon was a HUGE success!
We celebrated the many fine folks who volunteer their time here at the Trails Center on Saturday, October 13 as the snow rolled into town. A feast from HQ BBQ and cake made with love by Jean Smart at Ridley's bakery filled our bellies, and Jason Vlcan presented a magnificent slideshow highlighting the wonderful adventures our volunteers enjoyed this past year! Come volunteer with us! We promise fun and crazy weather at the very least!
