Wyoming Stories: Handicap Ramp Opens Doors

On July 26, 1990 President George H W Bush signed into law the Americans With Disabilities Act. Among other things, the ADA has accessibility requirements for public places—such as stores or restaurants. But the Elk Mountain Trading Company was built 1895, long before the idea of handicap accessibility. Nancy Casner, who owns the Crossing Café housed in the building, recalls what it meant to add a ramp to the historic building.

Cordelia Zars is excited to be a new volunteer for Wyoming Public Radio this winter; she is currently taking a year off of college and is exploring opportunities in the world of public media.
