The Casper Museum Consortium is proud to host the first-
ever “Ghost Tours at the Museums,”
6:30 & 7:15 pm, October 18th and 19th, 2013.
Ghost hunters will travel to three sites in a private bus each
night: Fort Caspar Museum, The Historic Bishop Home,
and The Veterans Memorial Museum. They will be
accompanied by independent ghost hunters, who will use
special equipment to detect any paranormal activity at
these sites. We will tour the fort buildings at Fort Caspar, to
include the Sutler’s Store, Barracks, Mess Hall, and
Telegraph Office, all of which have had reported activity in
Then we will go to The Historic Bishop Home in downtown
Casper, where Kevin Anderson will put several ghost
stories of Casper to the “fact or fiction” test, and talk about
the system of underground tunnels that have existed for
Ghost Tours at the Museums!
Participants will see the original newspaper article that describes Casper’s only hanging, and
listen to stories of Marvin L. Bishop’s life during the early days of Casper, as reenacted by
Marvin Nolte. Historical stories and folklore will be followed by a visit upstairs with the
paranormal tour guide.
Our last stop will feature the WY Veterans Memorial Museum, which is housed in the
Enlistedmen’s Club on the Casper Army Air Base, which was active as a training base during
World War II. After hearing some interesting stories at the Museum about some of the
tragedies that occurred during the time of its use, we will venture out via bus to two of the key
military buildings. The paranormal research experts will walk us through the buildings using
their ghosthunting equipment to see if we have any others joining us for the night!
Cost of the tour is $25 per person. Sign up today, as there are a limited seats available.
Register in person at Fort Caspar Museum. Remember to bring your flashlight, your digital
camera, and we encourage you to wear close-toed shoes appropriate for walking outside.
