Boy Scout Cabin, Casper, Wyoming
In 1934 the Federal Emergency Relief Administration constructed a cabin Wyoming for use by the Boy Scouts. According to the Casper Star-Tribune the cabin “comprises a large assembly room, kitchen and cloak room.” Work at the site also included tree planting and landscaping. The project cost $2,955.
The exact location and condition of this building are unknown to the Living New Deal. According to the Casper Star-Tribune the building was located in ‘south Casper’ “in the old city tourist camp.” An additional reference to it states that it is located near Durbin and Fifteenth streets, by the site of the old armory.
