Exciting News for the Historic Bishop Home!! The Cadoma Foundation, owner of the home, is pleased to announce that Leilani DeClue is the new house manager. Ms. DeClue will begin in February. She is an adjunct professor of Anthropology at Casper College. Her training specialized in the study of historic structures and their cultural evolution. After a brief training period, Ms. DeClue will be the lead tour guide for the Historic Bishop Home and assist in the planning and development of future events at the home.
The Cadoma Foundation is pleased to announce that the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund awarded the Historic Bishop a grant for the restoration of home's iconic "Southern Colonial" porch. We are thankful to the Cultural Trust Fund for their support as well as the Goodstein Foundation, the First Interstate Bank, the Bon Agency, and numerous private donors who contributed to the home's restoration and maintenance fund. Weather permitting the public will be able to watch this restoration project beginning in March 2020.
Beginning February 18, 2020, the Historic Bishop Home will be open for tours on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is located at 818 East 2nd Street between Lincoln and Jefferson. Parking is behind the home off Lincoln Street. The Historic Bishop Home is Casper's only house museum open to the public and focuses on the urban history of Casper as seen through lives of an early pioneer family. The home was built in 1907, the first multi-story brick home in Casper and the only Casper home individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Please plan to tour the home and welcome Ms. DeClue. For additional information on the home and how you can support the development of this historic home, follow us on Facebook or call 307 235 5277.
