Wyoming’s Historic Governors’ Mansion

Wyoming’s Historic Governors’ Mansion

The Historic Governor’s Mansion is located at 300 E. 21st St. in Cheyenne. The state has converted this home for 19 of Wyoming’s first families into a museum that shows domestic life of those governors and families who lived there from 1904 to 1977, when a modern governor’s residence was built. Great effort has been made to restore original furniture and use historically accurate reproductions of wallpaper, drapes and carpet used in the historic residence.

The site is partially handicapped accessible, with a ramp located on the west side of the mansion.  The first floor is fully accessible.  A video tour is available on the website linked below. Admission is free, but hours change seasonally. For more information, contact the mansion office at (307) 777-7878 or visit the State Parks and Historic Sites’ website at http://wyoparks.state.wy.us/Site/SiteInfo.aspx?siteID=23.
