Finished in 1913, Trail End was the home of the John B. Kendrick family. He was a cowboy who came up the Texas Trail in 1879, made his money in ranching and real estate, and later served as Wyoming's Governor and U.S. Senator. Trail End's Flemish Revival design and technologically-advanced interior are unique to the Rocky Mountain west.

Wyoming On The Road - WY

DAY ONE: Twenty-three miles from the Montana State Line is Sheridan, home of the Trail End State Historic Site and the Kendrick Mansion. John B. Kendrick came to Wyoming a penniless, uneducated and orphan cowboy, and later became governor of Wyoming and a U.S. Senator. Another 23 miles south on I-90 leads to Exit 44 and Fort Phil Kearny State Historic Site. Near the fort is the Fetterman Battlefield, the site where Capt. William J. Fetterman and 80 soldiers were ambushed by hundreds of Lakota and Cheyenne warriors. DAY TWO: West of Buffalo and north of Ten Sleep is the Medicine Lodge State Archaeological Site. This site features a variety of petroglyphs and pictographs dating back tens of thousands of years. The site, which has been determined to be a crossroads for prehistoric peoples, also offers great camping and picnicking for the modern day traveler. Traveling back to I-90 and towards the South Dakota State Line is Keyhole State Park. Drop a line in Keyhole Reservoir or camp at the sites many campsites. Either way Keyhole State Park offers a quiet, relaxing experience.
