DOCENTS (VOLUNTEER GUIDES) are the backbone of our school tour program. We literally couldn't do what we do without them! But we are in need of MORE docents! If you are interested in history, enjoy elementary school children and can be available during school hours, we have a "job" for you! Learn all about being a docent by attending our Docent Training Workshop on Tuesday, March 14, from 10 a.m. to noon. Phone 307-674-4589 for more information.

Trail End Reopens!

FROM ITS AUTHENTICALLY furnished rooms to its finely manicured lawns, Trail End displays an elegantly different aspect of Wyoming's rich and colorful history.

Built in the Flemish Revival style, the 13,748 square foot mansion known as Trail End provides an intriguing glimpse into life during the period 1913 to 1933, primarily as seen through the eyes of the John B. Kendrick family.

This was a vibrant time when the world was undergoing radical changes in technology and society. The Kendricks participated in most of the seminal events of the era - World War One, the Jazz Age, the Great Depression - and took advantage of most of the new technologies, from elevators and vacuum cleaners to automobiles and airplanes.

​Exhibits and displays throughout the home – utilizing primarily original artifacts from the house and family – provide information on daily life, entertainment, interior design and changing technology as well as early twentieth century ranching on the Northern Plains.
