Historic Governors' Mansion [WY]

This Colonial Revival Executive Mansion served as home to Wyoming's governors and their families for 71 years (1905 to 1976). The history embodied in this mansion brings to life the people who served the State of Wyoming and the Nation from this location. Perhaps the greatest distinction of the home is that in 1925 it was the first in the United States to be occupied by a woman governor, Nellie Tayloe Ross. Today, Mansion is open to the public as a historic house museum; it now reflects decor from 1905, 1937, 1955, and 1960s era throughout the home.

The mansion offers exhibits and tours.
