Historic Preservation

Our archival and photograph collections can be helpful in documenting  local homes and buildings. We can assist you in researching  your historic property.

Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps (from 1907 to 1939) document construction details and outbuildings for properties within the city of Cody. Historic photographs often show details of buildings. Maps are available online through the Wyoming State Library’s GoWYLD network.

In addition, our Vertical Reference Files, Biographies and Obituaries are available for documenting family homes and businesses.

The Park County Historic Preservation Commission helps with archaeological and historic preservation issues for the county, including nominations to the National Register of Historic Places. Their website includes links to the Wyoming State Historic Preservation Office and forms to nominate buildings to the National Register.
