CHEYENNE – The Wyoming State Historic Preservation Office announced that three properties have recently been listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Two of the three locations are in Sweetwater County. 

The Bairoil Town Hall has been a center of the Bairoil community since its construction in 1916. It was the headquarters of various oil companies that were active in the nearby Lost Soldier Oil Field until 1978 when it became the town hall for the newly incorporated town of Bairoil.

The church of Sts Cyril and Methodius acted as a unifying force for the many Slavic immigrants who began entering the community of Rock Springs in the early part of the 20th century. Completed in 1925 the church is a symbol of the ethnic diversity that is the hallmark of Rock Springs’ civic identity.
