The Whipple House
300 E. 17th St. in Cheyenne (307) 638-3551

Ithamar Whipple constructed this Italianate mansion during Cheyenne’s golden age, 1880-1890. A Cheyenne merchant, Whipple became a founder of the Wyoming Stock Growers’ Association. He later sold this home to Territorial Supreme Court Justice John Lacey. The building was later used by a private men’s club and fell into disrepair before being restored to its original grandeur in 1986. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
