The Albany County History Society was established in 1943 by Mrs. S.S. Wheeler, who saw a pressing need for a group to support the collection, classification, and preservation of historical materials from Albany County and Wyoming. We are a chapter of the Wyoming State Historical Society and 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.


Our Purpose

The purpose of this organization shall be, first: to plan, to promote and to sponsor educational programs for the Chapter and the public on historical subject pertaining to Albany County and to Wyoming in genera; second, to collect source materials and other historical data pertaining to the early history peculiar to Albany County and nearby areas; third, to encourage its members and other local residents to do research, author articles and reports and accomplish publication of the same, and fourth, to promote interest and support for the Laramie Plains Museum, which the Chapter helped to establish.
