“A Walk through Carbon County History”
Take a walk though time and space with Rawlins’ downtown art tour. This educational walking tour, funded by Rawlins DDA/Main Street, Carbon County School District #1 Recreation Board, Carbon County Visitor’s Council and the Wyoming Arts Council, celebrates the history of Carbon County through murals created by local artists in 2005-2007 as well as other art pieces that have been created since. 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.
