The Strand Rawlins Wyoming

About 10 years ago, if we’re being honest, downtown Rawlins wasn’t much of a destination.

"Back in 2006, we had a lot of slum and blight in the downtown," said Pam Thayer, the executive director of the Rawlins Downtown Development Authority/Main Street. "There were a lot of deteriorating buildings and empty spaces; victims of boom-and-bust cycles and continual transition periods."
