How To Use This Site

This blog was updated on a daily basis for about two years, with those daily entries ceasing on December 31, 2013. The blog is still active, however, and we hope that people stopping in, who find something lacking, will add to the daily entries.

The blog still receives new posts as well, but now it receives them on items of Wyoming history. That has always been a feature of the blog, but Wyoming's history is rich and there are many items that are not fully covered here, if covered at all. Over time, we hope to remedy that.

You can obtain an entire month's listings by hitting on the appropriate month below, or an individual day by hitting on that calendar date.

We hope you enjoy this site.

April 30

1803  The treaty providing for the sale of Louisiana, including most of what would become Wyoming, was signed.

1812    Louisiana became the 18th state, albeit one with an obviously much decreased territorial expanse compared to the territory it represented when sold to the United States.

1869  Union Pacific reached Promontory Point, Utah.

1906  A and B Mines opened at Superior.

1926  The cornerstone was laid for the University of Wyoming's engineering building.  Attribution:  On This Day.  The photo above depicts the building some time in the 1950s.  The one below, in 1986.
