Happy New Year from the Historic Bishop Home!

We are grateful for the year-end support we received from the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, the Wyoming Business Relief Fund, the Greenwood Foundation as well as private donors. The home is a top choice for visitors looking for a unique presentation of Casper and Wyoming history. Plans for 2021 are to continue to offer tours on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p. m. and host small private events for a fee. Our major restoration project this year is a new drive through to facility the home's access. The front porch was beautifully restored in 2020 and welcomes visitors with a wonderful ADA ramp and new steps. Visitors may access the home either by the front or back porches. Parking is available in the rear of the home off Lincoln Street. The home is located at 818 East Second Street between Lincoln and Jefferson.

Smithsonian 'Votes for Women A Portrait of Persistence' Exhibit through mid-October

The Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and The National Portrait Gallery present "Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence," a free poster exhibition celebrating the centennial of the 19th Amendment that secured Women's voting rights in the U.S. Continuing the Year of the Women, the Historic Bishop Home is pleased to showcase this wonderful poster exhibit that traces the 80 year history of Women's Suffrage Movement. The fight for the right for women to vote began in the mid-1800's and reached a major milestone on 1920 with the ratification of the 19th Amendment. The poster exhibit traces the movement from the beginning to 1965 passage of Voting Rights Act. The Historic Bishop Home is located at 818 East 2nd Street Casper, Wyoming. Parking is available behind the home off Lincoln Street. The home is open Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is $2.00 per person. To protect guests and staff, we are observing basic safety protocol set by the Natrona County Health Department during the pandemic. Guests are asked to wear masks and our provided shoe protectors in accordance with these procedures. For additional information visit www.cadomafoundation.org or call 307 235 5277.
