Free Lecture Highlights Travel Across Wyoming on July 23rd


Lincoln Highway Monument, Wyoming

The sixth of Fort Caspar Museum’s seven free summer lectures will be on Wednesday, July 23rd at 6:30 pm. Heyward Schrock will present “Rest and Refuel Along the Lincoln Highway.”

Using historic photographs, Schrock will discuss the history of early automobile travel across the United States on the nation’s first coast-to-coast interstate highway, with a focus on Wyoming. Using a 1920’s travel guide, Mr. Schrock will draw upon the parallel history of wagon-bound emigrants who relied on printed Oregon Trail Guides to plan their journey. By sharing the archaic Official Road Guide of the Lincoln Highway, he will demonstrate that 1920’s travelers continued the Western tradition of guide-book emigration.

This program is funded in part by the Fort Caspar Museum Association and the Wyoming Humanities Council. No reservations are needed and all are welcome.
The next (and final) lecture will be on Wednesday, July 30th at 6:30 pm. Local historian Jefferson Glass will present a talk on the subject of his new book John Baptiste Richard, commonly known—and pronounced—as “Reshaw.”
