This Day In Cheyenne History: Historic Governors Mansion Makes Registry
This gem in Cheyenne, also known as the Historic Governor's Mansion, was built in 1904 and depicted the Georgian Colonial style. It made its national mark on this day in 1969.
The year was 1901, just three years before the World Fair in St. Louis, Missouri, and the Wyoming Legislature gave authorization for the building of the executive quarters in Cheyenne.
The cost of the land was right around $3,000 with a building cost of $37,000. As a side note, the Historic Governors Mansion was the first building to be occupied by a woman governor in the United States.
In 1969, the Wyoming Governor's Historic Mansion and Grounds was recognized and added to the National Register of Historic Places.
The governor's mansion is still open to the public and hosts fundraisers and holiday functions throughout the year.
