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.
