Recording and aiding in the preservation of historic sites within Natrona County.

About the Natrona County Historic Preservation Commission

The Historic Preservation Commission provides direction and support for historical research and preservation in Natrona County.

Landowners who believe they have a historical site on their property warranting recording and preservation may contact the NCHPC for more information.

Additionally the Commission facilitates the general public being able to connect with and learn about Natrona County’s heritage by providing information, resources, and relationships with preservation partners.

We are also associated with the Wyoming State Historic Preservation Office and federal agencies under federal legislation that, in 1980, established the Certified Local Government Program (CLG). This program offers small assistance grants and forges a relationship between local, state and national preservation networks.

Responsibilities:

The Historic Preservation Commission provides direction and support for historical research and preservation in Natrona County. This board is not maintained by county offices. The Commission was established by the Natrona County Board of County Commissioners in 1986 and operates as a recognized CLG Board for Natrona County. The Certified Local Government (CLG) Program is where local, state, and federal governments work together in the Federal Preservation Program to help communities save the irreplaceable historic character of places. Through the certification process, communities make a local commitment to historic preservation. This commitment is key to America’s ability to preserve, protect, and increase awareness of our unique cultural heritage found in the built environment across the country.
