Lynette West gave a tour of the Wyoming State Capitol. The cornerstone for the building was laid in Cheyenne on May 18, 1887, although the city was not officially named Wyoming’s Capital until nearly a century later. Ms. West talked about some of Wyoming’s important figures represented in the Capitol, including Chief Washakie of the Shoshone and Ester Morris, the first female Justice of the Peace.
