The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) developed under the cooperative eye of three primary partners - The Bureau of Land Management
, the National Historic Trails Center Foundation, and the City of Casper
There are seven galleries, a multi media presentation on Oregon Trail-Rendezvous Country, California (Glendo State Park), Mormon (Fort Laramie National Historic Site), Pony Express trails (Sweetwater County) and Native American history. A congressional bill was passed and signed by President Bill Clinton to fund construction and operation of this $10 Million project. The NHTIC opened in August of 2002. This educational, family, historical attraction is well worth a visit by all Americans and those seeking to understand the American Culture.
