Many of the buildings you see in Downtown Casper today were built in the early 1900's and the 1920's. During the 1920 oil boom, new buildings were constructed and additional floors were added to existing buildings. Nearly every storefront had clerestory windows (high windows near the top of the first floor ceiling) designed to provide light to the front of the store. Concern about heat loss caused most of them to be removed or covered in later years. The elegance of many buildings comes in the corbeling of the brick, patterns made by projecting some bricks from the flat wall surface. Others are enhanced by carvings of classical Greek or Roman details. The cornice, the topmost band around the building, may also be ornately patterned or sculptured. Pick up a brochure from the Casper Historic Preservation Commission and take their Self-Guided Tour of all the incredible Historic Buildings in Downtown Casper, and meet the amazing merchants that occupy these buildings today!
