Bessemer, Wyoming

The former site of Bessemer is located approximately 12 miles southwest of Casper. From Highway 220, turn west onto Natrona County Road 311 and head west toward the North Platte River. The town site was about half a mile west of the west end of the bridge. No original buildings remain, and most of the land is privately owned. An interpretive site at the Speck-Bessemer Float Access Area features a short trail and signs about the general history of the area.
