Independence Rock

Make the Trek to Independence Rock

Over one hundred and fifty years ago, when America was still in its infancy, emigrants forging West toward the promise of a new, brighter future passed through Central Wyoming. Along the way, many of them stopped at a large granite formation located about 50 miles southwest of Casper. As a testament to their journey, they would carve their names into the rock that stands 136 feet tall and is equal to an area of 24.81 acres. Today it’s known as Independence Rock, and it is a poignant reminder of the sacrifice and fortitude of those who knew a better future lay before them. Take an afternoon to visit this national historic landmark — who knows, you might just find the names of some of your ancestors!
