A Look Inside An Historic Casper Home [GALLERY]
The Henning Mansion that is located at 1108 South Wolcott in Casper was built in 1923 by Casper's first millionaire, Welker F. Henning and has been a home of community interest ever since.
Welker Henning came to Casper by way of Kentucky and Colorado. He made his fortune by installing water and sewer lines, bringing in the first mechanical trencher to Casper when the paving of the streets made the construction of those storm sewers necessary.
Over the years the home was also owned by Dick Lisco who was a pioneer in uranium mining and is also remembered as a president of Teton Exploration and for Teton's horizontal drilling equipment that is still widely used in today's drilling procedures.
The home was also owned by Dr N.E. Morad who purchased not only the home but also was an owner of the Henning Hotel at one time. Dr. Morad also owned a large chunk of property in southwest Casper, part of which he donated to the city for what is now Morad Park along the river.
After sitting empty for many years, the mansion was purchased and an extensive remodeling and facelift was undertaken, renewing interest in the home. The Henning Mansion has been recently listed for sale and a number of pictures have been taken to market the home. A recent gallery on For The Love Of Old Houses has piqued the interest of locals and those across the country as well.
Here is a look at the home after the restoration.
