Walk-Thru-CC-History-(2)

“A Walk through Carbon County History”

Take a walk though time and space with Rawlins’ downtown mural tour. This educational walking tour, funded by Rawlins DDA/Main Street, Carbon County School District #1 Recreation Board and the Wyoming Arts Council, celebrates the history of Carbon County through murals created by local artists in 2005-2007. The 12 murals highlight the history and natural beauty of south central Wyoming. From the innovate work of Thomas Edison and James Candlish to the splendor of the native pronghorn and aspen, the mural tour shows the diverse and rich history of the region. Pick up a brochure at the Rawlins DDA/Main Street Office (in the Rainbow Teton Entrepreneur Center at 116 4th St.), Rawlins Chamber of Commerce, or at any of the murals. A good place to start and pick up the brochure is at the Depot Park, at the corner of 4th and Front Streets. It can also be downloaded below.

PARC-(2)

Public Art for the Rawlins Community (PARC)

PARC is a diverse group of community-minded individuals coming together for the common purpose of visually enhancing the community through the purchase and placement of permanent pieces of art that will reflect the spirit of Rawlins, as well as begin a rotating art program. They have commissioned and placed the first permanent art at the corner of 4th and Cedar – Navigation. The second component, beginning in late 2015, will establish an outdoor gallery of rotating artwork. Currently, PARC is funded through Passion & Pride 2014, Wyoming Main Street Technical Funds, and private donations from the community.

Historic-Walking-Tour-(2)

Historic Downtown Rawlins Walking Tour

This tour, which was published in 1994, will take you through Rawlins’ nationally designated downtown historic district and other historically significant places of interest in about 60-90 minutes. Since the brochure needs some minor revisions and the original printable file is missing, there has not been a reprinting of the actual brochure.  If you would like to take this tour, please download both the Brochure and Map files, and either print them off on your own or view on an electronic device of your choice as you enjoy walking the heart of our community.
