The Fremont County Fire Protection District is in the process of putting up a new structure for the volunteer fire fighters in the area.

(Lander, Wyo.) – The last remaining piece of the Lander Community Center was toppled yesterday. Destroyed by fire in July, the Community Center, circa 1920,  was demolished by contractor Tim Bales, who left the fireplace standing until Wednesday afternoon. Ramo Anesi built the iconic fire place; Ramo was also the builder of the red stone Lander wall that surrounded the old high school and is still in place on West Main Street at the site of the Lander Business Park. Anesi’s grandson is Doug Anesi, president of the First Interstate Bank in Lander. (Photo by Michelle Motherway)
