The StoneWolf casino expansion project that began with its ceremonial ground breaking in July of last year is nearing completion. The Pawnee Nation Travel Plaza first opened in 2004, and since that time has seen several property improvements. These improvements included the addition of casino gaming in 2007, and a major renovation in 2009 adding what is known as present day StoneWolf Casino. Pawnee Tribal Development Corporation announced las year they are moving forward with a multi-million dollar casino expansion, breaking ground nine months ago on its first major project in years.
With the exception of finishing up some work on the exterior, StoneWolf Casino and Howler's Famous BBQ are now fully functiioal. StoneWolf Casino will soon be the talk of the the town. The gaming floor has been expanded by an additional 4,500 square feet, and approximately 150 new games, as well as soon to be table games. The newly added and much needed back-of-house consists of an additional 4,200 square feet, including new office space, and a large conference room to be used for trainings and meetings. Howler's Famous BBQ has gone from seating 66 to now seating 90.
The project is currently in its soft opening stage, and is looking forward to its grand opening festivities beginning in August. The new expansion is expected to attract thousands of new visitors annually, create new jobs for those in our community, and will continue to be a provider of significant support and funding to the Pawnee Nation.
