Trail End State Historic Site [WY]

Finished in 1913, Trail End was the home of the John B. Kendrick family. He was a cowboy who came up the Texas Trail in 1879, made his money in ranching and real estate, and later served as Wyoming's Governor and U.S. Senator. Trail End's Flemish Revival design and technologically-advanced interior are unique to the Rocky Mountain west. Today's visitors can enjoy 3.8 acres of groomed grounds (containing hundreds of indigenous and exotic trees) and a fully-restored historic house museum (mostly original furniture), plus regular productions at the Carriage House Theater.

A second website for this site can be found here.

The site offers exhibits, tours, educational programs, research library access, and performances.
