Facility:Wyoming Territorial Prison State Historic Site
Description:Listed on the National Register, visitors can spend the day touring the beautifully restored Wyoming Territorial Prison. Built in 1872, the prison held some of the most notorious outlaws in the region, including Butch Cassidy. Visitors to the 190-acre facility can also enjoy the newly restored Warden's House and Horse Barn Exhibit Hall featuring rotating displays and a family friendly scavenger hunt. New for 2008: "Community Art, Western Art" featuring original pieces by the local Laramie Art Guilds. In the prison, learn more about Butch Cassidy in "The Reel, Not Real, Butch Cassidy" exhibit. Those wishing to take a little piece of the prison and Wyoming home with them can stop by the Visitor's Center and gift shop for a splendid array of memorabilia. Large groups and RVs are welcome! Plenty of parking. Bring your lunch and have a picnic on the grounds and let the kids stretch their legs. Lots to see and do.
