Cooper Mansion

The Cooper Mansion.

It really is an “eye-catcher”, this beautiful white structure that stands on the northwest corner of 15th and Grand in Laramie, Wyoming. It was built by a young, wealthy Englishman by the name of Frank Cooper. Cooper had come to the Laramie Plains in the early 1900’s, and built his fortune in the cattle industry. Cooper was one of the original “cattle barons”, and in 1921, he hired reknowned architect Wilbur Hitchcock, and built his mansion. Sixty-two years later, in 1983, Cooper Mansion was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Cooper Mansion is a very unique structure, with its varying examples of style. There are so many different combinations of modern and classic, there’s a hint of pueblo and mission, and you’ll even notice a bit of art-deco in the Cooper Mansion as well. Cooper Mansion has served as home to the American Studies program at the University of Wyoming, and for nearly a century, it has stood as a symbol of prosperity and success from an era long gone by.
