I grew up not far from Fort Casper, and I've visited twice in the past 30 years. I continue to be amazed that such a small town has such a great historical landmark like this. The museum building is top notch, with a great bookstore/gift shop and wonderful exhibits, but the buildings outdoors are the real stars. Anyone who has ever been to Colonial Williamsburg (in Virginia) knows how it feels, wandering thru history. Fort Casper is the living history of the Old West. And if you like Fort Casper, go see Fort Laramie too.
