The Bishop House
The Bishop Home is a reflection of the development of Casper from a small pioneer community to a commercial and agricultural center and oil town. The Bishop family home was constructed in 1907 in the Capitol Hill Addition area of Casper, Wyoming during Casper’s first boom time. The home is the first multi-story brick house built in Casper, moving the building trend of modest bungalows to larger, more upscale homes (considered mansions in 1907). The home resides in its original location at 818 East Second Street on a hill overlooking downtown Casper. The contractor was W. T. Evans, founder of Evansville, Wyoming. The Bishop Home is believed to be his first venture into large scale family homes. The architect is believed to be Elias N. Miller.
