The year-round workshop and headquarters for the Western Center for Historic Preservation is located in Moose, Wyoming. The building, originally located at the historic JY Ranch (now the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve), was moved and reassembled in Moose in the summer of 2005 and subsequently retrofitted for WCHP use. The Moose facility now houses office space for four full-time employees and several seasonal staff members, a conference room, and a 3,000 square foot workshop. The preservation workshop contains specialized equipment used for treatment, repair, and replication of windows, doors, cabinets, and other historic building components. The workshop has also been critical in the rehabilitation of the White Grass Dude Ranch which will in turn be used to host future preservation training courses. The WCHP is part of the Vanishing Treasures Program. Please visit the Vanishing Treasures website for more information about training and programs.
