During the month of May, the Alliance for Historic Wyoming (AHW) will celebrate Wyoming’s rich history with events, tours, and exhibits throughout the state’s historic downtowns and historic sites, and museums. AHW’s month of programming is a time for communities across the state to show why historic preservation matters .
Preservationists around the country have been celebrating Historic Preservation Month since it was launched by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1973. The Alliance launched the Wyoming program in 2019 and it has grown each year, now including 25 events.
Wyoming’s Historic Preservation Month will include open houses at historic properties, tours, workshops, and community service projects. They will be promoting 5 driving tours of historic places in Wyoming through a partnership with TravelStorys and several statewide social media campaigns.
