Territorial Park To Focus On History

Laramie, WY – The new Superintendent of Laramie's Wyoming Territorial Park says visitors can expect some changes at the historic site in coming years. Tom Lindemeier was chosen to head up the Territorial Prison when the state took over management of the site this spring. Lindemeier says some deferred maintenance needs to be performed to prevent further deterioriation of some of the buildings. He says electronic equipment used to provide interpretive displays also isn't working anymore. Lindemeier says his focus will be to spotlight the historic nature of the Territorial Prison. He says a lot of the work probably won't be done this summer, but visitors can expect to see some results next summer.
