Wyoming Army National Guard
A survey and evaluation of Wyoming Army National Guard historic properties including Camp Guernsey State Military Reservation Cantonment Area and Wyoming National Guard armories throughout the state, was undertaken by the University of Wyoming American Studies Department in 2005-2006. In addition, consultants developed a Management Plan for Historic Properties at Camp Guernsey.
The collection includes three documents pertaining to Army National Guard historic properties throughout Wyoming: "Wyoming Army National Guard Historic Buildings Field Inventory and Evaluation Report (2007)", "Management Plan for Historic Properties at Camp Guernsey (2007)" and Historic Properties site forms for all buildings at Camp Guernsey, the airport at Camp Guernsey and all armories in the state.
Camp Guernsey State Military Reservation Cantonment Area was originally constructed by workers of the Works Projects Administration. The buildings are constructed from locally quarried sandstone creating a unique collection of structures that have served the Army National Guard for decades. Later additions to the camp reflect changes in Army policies throughout the twentieth century. The Camp Guernsey Cantonment Area is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The report discovered that the Army National Guard has responsibly maintained and continued use of these buildings. The management plan was designed to help the Army National Guard to continue to successfully manage its historic properties.
The University of Wyoming American Studies Program, contracted by the United States Army National Guard and supervised by Mary Humstone, performed the cultural resources inventory and report. With the cooperation of the Guard the American Studies program created a management plan for the continued protection of these cultural properties.
