Historic Preservation in the Cowboy State, Wyoming’s Comprehensive Statewide Historic Preservation Plan 2016-2026

The final plan is now available! (34.4 MB)pdf document

In 2014, we began making preparations to revise the 2007-2015 Historic Preservation Plan. The plan was developed with input from our preservation partners, stakeholders, and the public. We appreciate all of you who participated in the planning process by responding to our plan revision survey, attending one of our public meetings, or providing review comments on the draft plan. The final plan was approved by the National Park Service’s historic preservation planning program in January 2016. Wyoming’s Comprehensive Statewide Historic Preservation Plan guides the actions and sets the priorities for historic preservation activity in Wyoming through 2026.
