Celebrating history of the Sheridan Inn

From a Wyoming SPCR press release:

In celebration of National Preservation Month, the Sheridan Community Land Trust is presenting the Sheridan Heritage Center Inc. with a plaque to commerate the first historic easement in the State of Wyoming.

The Land Trust and the Sheridan Heritage Center Inc. signed the easement last December giving the Land Trust preservation oversight.

This easement is very significant to the preservation of the Sheridan Inn as it does not allow any of the historic features such as the exterior of the building and significant historic features of the interior of the building to be destroyed.

In 1965 the Sheridan Inn was designated as a National Historic Landmark, which in itself is important, but it offers no protection to preserve the Inn or any interior features. With this designation those who wish to contribute to the preservation can be assured that their investment will remain for the next 50 years.

“The presentation will take place at the banquet to be held at the Sheridan Inn May 11 in conjunction with the ‘Living Upstairs in Wyoming’ the theme of the State Historic Preservation Office state wide meeting to be held in Sheridan, May 11 and 12,” Mark Kinner, chairperson of the Sheridan Community land Trust said.

Those wishing to attend the historic event, please RSVP by May 4, to Ashley Rooney at
arroone@state.wy.us, or call 307-777-7566.
