Wyoming Territorial Prison

Wyoming Territorial Prison

Explore the Wyoming Territorial Prison

History buffs love spending time in Southern Wyoming. Numerous historical sites are found in Laramie. The Wyoming Territorial Prison was 1872, and housed over 1,000 people. 

The prison was used from 1872 until 1903. Afterwards, the prisoners were moved to Rawlins, Wyoming. The prison, the Warden's house and Prison Industries building were used by the College of Agriculture at the University of Wyoming, as an experiment station for a number of years.

In 1989, the prison and the accompanying buildings were restored to preserve their historical value. While in Laramie, be sure to add the prison site to your list of must-see historical attractions.

The Ivinson Mansion and Grounds, the East Side School and the Fort Sanders Guardhouse, all located in Laramie, are among the twenty historical sites listed on the National Register of Historical Places.
