The Casper Dry Cleaners sign must have had balls on top at one time. It was probably built in the 1960s. For more, see this website. [map]

There was originally a neon pole sign next to the Topper Motel that appeared to be from the 1950s. I don't know when this directional sign was built or if it had neon. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Wardrobe Cleaners
Casper, WY
former Western Grill
Casper, WY
The Wardrobe Cleaners opened in 1916 and closed in 2019. There were raceway letters on the building originally but those were gone by 2021. This sign is probably from the 1950s or 1960s. The top panel has the word "Futurmatic" painted on it. There are rocket ship type fins below the panels. [map]

Alibi Bar & Lounge
Casper, WY
The Alibi Bar & Lounge opened in 1956. The sign installed flat against the facade was probably a projecting or pole sign originally. The current pole sign might be from the 1960s. There was also a rooftop sign which was removed around 2020. [map]

Lou Taubert Ranch Outfitters
Casper, WY
Lou Taubert Ranch Outfitters was founded in Casper in 1919. This building dates to at least 1907 and initially housed a furniture store. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In the 1920s and 1930s, it housed a Golden Rule store and a JC Penney store. By the mid-1950s, the building housed Gordon's Jewelers. The Gordon's terrazzo tile apron remains. Taubert's moved to this location around 1964 and these signs are probably from then. The company expanded to the building next door by the 1980s. Another location opened in Billings, MT in 1979. The signs were restored in 2010. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]

Sanford's Grub & Pub
Casper, WY
Sanford's Grub & Pub has a collection of neon signs inside the restaurant. I don't believe the gas station signs in the top row or the Goodyear sign in the second row had neon originally. The Pontiac sign might be an original or a replica. The Dog n Suds sign is probably original. The "Food" sign was originally a Ford sign like this one.

This Fraternal Order of Eagles was founded in 1901. This building is from 1941 and this sign might be from then as well. The neon was missing for many years. Around 2021, LED rope was installed. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

2012: 2022: 2012: 2022:
The Wyoming Motel opened in 1936. There was a different pole sign there in the mid-1960s. This neon sign must have been built after that. The sign was painted orange and blue by 2017. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

The Lariat Motel sign had neon originally. It was probably built in the 1950s. By 2021, the word "MOTEL" had been painted over and the building was boarded up. In 2022, it was announced that the building would be adapted for apartments. The owner plans to relight the sign. [map]
