CASPER, Wyo. — The Casper Historic Preservation Commission is inviting the community to an open house Friday at Black Tooth Brewery to talk about historic preservation and to hear stories about the history of the area.

The event is scheduled to honor National Historic Preservation month, and people from a variety of community organizations will be in attendance to talk about how they support historic preservation in Casper.

“Our history is our story, and we cannot wait to share the conversation with others who are interested in the history of Casper,” Jeff Bond, chair of the Casper Historic Preservation Commission, said. “Come join us and celebrate our community’s rich history.”

The open house will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, May 13. Families with children can come to the outdoor patio, while the taproom is open to anyone 21 and older.

Black Tooth’s Casper brewery is inside of the new building “The Nolan” at 322 S. David St. The redevelopment of the building housing the brewery is in itself an example of efforts to preserve historic building elements. More details are available in this Walking with Casper story that features Lyle Murtha, principal architect at Stateline No. 7, the firm designing The Nolan redevelopment.
