Laramie Plains Museum

The Laramie Plains Museum is located in the Ivinson Mansion at 603 E. Ivinson in Laramie, Wyo. Prominent businessman and philanthropist Edward Ivinson and his first wife, Jane, built the home, which cost $40,000 and was completed in 1893. After Jane’s death, Ivinson gave the structure to the Episcopal Missionary District of Wyoming to be used as a home for teenage girls. The Carriage House Gift Shop is located on the museum grounds.
