You probably won't be surprised to learn that this is considered a mansion, the Ferris Mansion, to be specific. You probably also won't be surprised that although it was once a private residence, it's now a B&B. What might surprise you is that the house came from a kit. Yes, in the early twentieth century it was possible to order a house exactly like this and have it delivered to your site. How did I learn that? From a lecture at the Wyoming State Museum earlier this year.
In case you're interested in staying there, the Ferris Mansion is located in Rawlins.
Welcome! I hope you'll join me for my Wednesday in Wyoming posts -- a chance to learn a little bit about the state I now call home. And, for more information about me and my books, please visit www.amandacabot.com.
