About the AHC

The University of Wyoming's American Heritage Center, located on the eastern side of the UW campus in the Centennial Complex, preserves a clearly defined set of primary sources and rare books - reflecting the written, visual, and audio history of Wyoming, the Rocky Mountain region, and select aspects of the American past - and makes those sources accessible to all. Our diverse collections support casual inquiry and international scholarship; most importantly, we play an active and creative role in the teaching and research missions of the University of Wyoming.
