Wyoming Frontier Prison - Wondrous Wyoming

This place can be toured, though we didn't have time to look into that when we were parked in front. Maybe one day... when I'm in the mood to face ghosts and a very dark part of Wyoming history.

This prison opened for "business in 1901 and didn't close until 1981. It didn't have adequate heating for most of its history and executed a handful of prisoners before 1965.


I encourage you to read more about this prison.
