The original Laramie County Courthouse at 19th and Carey. Did you know the 3rd Territorial Legislative Assembly met here, the same building where Tom Horn was hung? When the 3rd Territorial Legislature convened in 1873, the Capitol Building had not yet been built. The men met in the newly constructed Laramie County Courthouse. This original building has since been razed, but the current Laramie County Courthouse Complex sits on the same block. Photo from the Wyoming State Archives.

Laramie Wyoming began as an “end of the tracks town” meaning it was created due to the railroad. The first passengers who arrived in Laramie in 1868 were met with the railroad station that also acted as a hotel and restaurant. This original Depot was destroyed by a fire in 1917 and the new one was built in1924.The Laramie Depot acts as a community center for Laramie Wyoming as well as a small museum of Laramie railroad heritage.

Laramie, Wyoming downtown,  Many of the upper stories close to the railroad tracks were bordellos at one time or another. My friend Maureen saw one full of stalls/cribs in the early 70's before they tore them out.
