Oregon- California Trail


During the years 1841-1867 over 350,000 persons passed through Casper on their way West. The majority of them traveled through what is now the lobby of the First Interstate Bank. The promise of free land, sudden riches, or religious freedom caused these pioneers to endure the great hardships of a very difficult trail. Thousands of person died in the quest and are buried along the old highway. This was the largest overland migration in history.

C.H. King and Company


In 1888, before Casper was an official town, C.H. King and Company store was opened for business. On June 10, 1889, it became C.H. King and Company Bankers.
In 1989, that bank celebrates 100 years of service to Casper and Natrona County as First Interstate Bank of Casper. We are proud of our heritage, and look forward to the next 100 years
