Abstract : This document is the first volume of a two-volume report of an architectural survey of seven Wyoming armories that were built between 1961 and 1974 and utilized by the Wyoming Army National Guard. These armories are located in Casper, Cheyenne, Evanston, Lander, Lovell, Wheatland, and Worland, Wyoming. This survey satisfies Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 as amended, and it was used to determine the eligibility of these seven armories for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). It is the recommendation of this report that the seven National Guard Armories are significant at the state level under NRHP Criterion A for the Wyoming armory construction program; however, only four armories retain enough physical integrity to be eligible for inclusion into the NRHP. Lovell and Worland retain enough integrity to be individually eligible for the NRHP at the state level under Criterion A. The Casper, Cheyenne, and Wheatland armories do not retain enough integrity to be eligible for the NRHP. Evanston and Lander are not yet 50 years of age; however, they do meet the requirements for eligibility under Criteria Consideration G and also retain enough integrity to be individually eligible for the NRHP under Criterion A.
