Wyoming Celebrates Historic Preservation Month

WORLAND — May is Historic Preservation Month. This year, the Alliance for Historic Wyoming (AHW) partnered with 12 Historic Preservation Commissions throughout the state to celebrate local businesses across Wyoming who operate in historic buildings.

In addition, it is a month to recognize the multitude of historic buildings that have been rehabilitated, repurposed and “working” throughout the state.

The Washakie County Historic Preservation Commission nominated Larsen’s Bicycles located in Worland to be recognized for their historic preservation efforts. Bee Healthy, Larsen’s Bicycles neighbor is also joining in the celebration of Historic Preservation Month. Stop by the businesses on Wednesday, May 29 to visit with the owners about doing business in a historic building.

The Wyoming Business Council is a sponsor of the month’s celebration of historic preservation, as well. A total of 15 businesses, the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center, a Historic Building Bender/Bar Crawl in Gillette, and the Cheyenne Preservation Summit will be promoted through posters and various media outlets.
