Casper Museum Consortium

The Consortium came together in 1998 as a joint venture between the City of Casper and the Natrona County School District with the common goal of marketing the top-notch facilities we have in Casper to both in and out of town visitors. We have grown into a relevant and useful organization in this community.

Bishop House

The Bishop family home, Casper's only historic home open for touring and events, was constructed in 1907 in the Capitol Hill Addition during the city's first boom time. The home is the first multi-story brick house built in Casper, moving the building trend of modest bungalows to larger, more upscale homes (considered mansions in 1907).

 

The home resides in its original location at 818 East Second Street on a hill overlooking downtown Casper. The contractor was W. T. Evans, founder of Evansville, Wyoming. The Bishop Home is believed to be his first venture into large-scale family homes. Step into this beautiful Four-Square Prairie Style home and learn some of Casper's most fascinating history about the life and times of one of the city's original pioneer families.
