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 largescale family homes. The architect is believed to be Elias N. Miller.

Create a memory of this historic day in Casper’s first multi-story mansion and only home individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Plan to stay on our property as the heavens will begin the show a little after 10:00 a.m.  With a lovely yard and tables, you will enjoy the total eclipse from start to finish in either the yard or the adjacent parking lot.  You will be greeted by coffee and our signature scones to enjoy while settling in for the show.  Grab your gourmet sack lunch prepared by Cordon-bleu Chef, Juanita Jungck (this is no blasé sack lunch), a pair of eclipse glasses, and a unique souvenir commemorating this historic event.  Complete the celebration with a refreshing mocktail toast to the return of the sun.  Time determined by Mother Nature!!!  Please note we will stop serving lunches at 10:45 a.m. so that our staff is able to enjoy and view the event as well.  For the enjoyment of all, only a limited number of packages are available.
