Things To Do

   

Overview

The Trail End State Historic Site was finished in 1913, and was the home of the John B. Kendrick family. John B. Kendrick 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), a fully-restored history house museum (mostly original furniture), plus regular productions at the Carriage House Theater.
