This mansion houses the museum and shows the kind of house the wealthy owned in a well documented western town.

I loved the victorian decor!!! The mansion is so beautiful, and contains so much great Laramie history. The docents were incredibly knowledgeable, and everyone was so friendly. I wish that I could live in that house. WOW!!!
