Featured EXHIBIT

"A, B, C's of Casper History"

November 21, 2020 to November 6, 2021

     This exhibit is a fun look at some of the people, places, and things that make Casper unique using rarely-viewed objects from the Museum’s own collection.

     Organized by the staff of Fort Caspar Museum, letters and objects may not showcase the his-tory that first comes to mind.  To give you just a couple examples:  “V” is represented by a vase once owned by former NCHS teacher Kathleen Hemry, and “J” is for J.C. Penney and features an original Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps uniform shirt purchased at Casper’s old downtown J.C. Penney store in 1958. 

     We encourage you to come explore the exhibit and learn a bit of    Casper history as told through these featured objects.
