Welcome to the Town of Bar Nunn, Wyoming

The Town of Bar Nunn was originally the site of Wardwell Field, Natrona County’s airport until 1952. That year, the United States Army Air Corps Base purchased property along U.S. Highway 20-26, and relocated the Casper Natrona County International Airport.

Romie Nunn, a local rancher and successful businessman, who moved to Casper in 1918 with his family, owned a portion of the Wardwell Field property. He repurchased the airport property (consisting of 640 acres) in 1954 for $20,500. Mr. Nunn hoped to make it “the horse center of the Rockies” but ultimately subdivided the area in 1958, calling it Bar Nunn Ranch Subdivision. Later, Mr. Nunn registered the Bar Nunn brand (-N) with the Wyoming State Livestock Board.
