Wyoming's 125 Anniversary

The 125th Anniversary special exhibit at the Wyoming State Museum is moving right along with the addition of artifacts from the 1970s.

One of the objects in this decade is a painting by Frederic Potter depicting the old Mission Apartments in Cheyenne.

After WW II, well-meaning urban renewal programs led to the loss of many historic buildings across the nation. In Cheyenne, one of the “victims” was the Mission Apartments Complex, built in 1910, that used to stand on the corner of Capitol Avenue and 22nd Street.

The Wyoming State Museum is located at 2301 Central Avenue in Cheyenne. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Admission is free.
