Well worth your time, especially if you live in Laramie and want to know more about our history. In the summer, tour guides include students from the local middle school. Very impressive!

This home of an early Laramie family was almost destroyed in the late 1960s. It has been adopted by the Laramie Plains Museum and lovingly restored. It houses many reminders of early Laramie.
