Fort Caspar reconstruction
The WPA performed structural renovation and historic restoration work at this site. From the Casper, Wyoming website: “In 1936, Casper citizens and the Works Progress Administration reconstructed Platte Bridge Station using sketches made by Caspar Collins and others in the 1860s. Reconstructions of the Mormon ferry and a section of the Guinard bridge are also part of the site.”
