We work with individuals, organizations, and state and local governments to identify the places that represent Wyoming’s history and culture, and take steps to ensure that these important places survive – respecting the story of past generations and enriching our lives for the future. AHW's offices are located in Laramie, Wyoming and our board is made up of members from all over the state.

Featured AHW Partner

First Interstate Bank

First Interstate Bank in Laramie has been a partner of the Alliance for Historic Wyoming (AHW) since 2015, and their commitment to giving back to the community goes far beyond the Alliance for Historic Wyoming. The bank gives tens of thousands of dollars each year in support of various organizations and events that benefit Laramie, such as Jubilee Days, the University of Wyoming, Ivinson Memorial Hospital, the Cathedral Home for Children, and Wyotech. In addition to the bank’s financial support of organizations in Laramie, First Interstate Bank encourages their employees to volunteer. Paul Irish, Vice President at the Laramie branch of the bank, is a board member for the Alliance for Historic Wyoming. In addition to serving as Treasurer for AHW, Paul is also active on the Albany County Library Foundation board, and is involved with United Way of Albany County and the Laramie Rotary Club. Paul donates a total of about 15-20 volunteer hours each month to the various organizations. For each hour he gives to nonprofit activities, the bank matches with a $10 deposit from the First Interstate Bank Foundation fund which is then used to reinvest in the community through donations. He says that the bank is very supportive of volunteerism and encourages workers to serve on many different boards. For Paul, joining the Alliance for Historic Wyoming board was something out of his comfort zone. He spreads himself thin through all of his volunteer work, but says that the people he has met in the historic preservation community has made it worth continuing to dedicate his time to saving historic places and spaces in Wyoming.
