Space is Wyoming’s defining characteristic. To each resident, it bestows a legacy of open landscapes and endless vistas. Across those spaces is written the history of our great state – the tepee rings and signature rocks; the enduring ruts of the historic emigrant trails and abandoned, sun-burned homesteads; the played out mining camps and outlaw hideouts. Many of these trails extend from border to border.

Wherever we are, Wyoming’s landscapes connect us to our past. Protecting these special spaces is central to the Alliance for Historic Wyoming’s mission. Working with land management agencies, the Alliance for Historic Wyoming helps ensure that these spaces can continue to tell Wyoming’s rich story to future generations.
