The cornerstone of the prison was laid in 1888, but due to funding issues and Wyoming’s notorious weather, the doors wouldn’t open for thirteen years. In December of 1901, the prison opened and consisted of only 104 cells (Cell Block A), no electricity or running water, and very inadequate heating.”</p> Wed, 31 Oct 2012 19:40:56 +0000 Wyoming Frontier Prison 32155 at http://wyomingpublicmedia.org Wyoming Frontier Prison - Rawlins
