Governor Matt Mead has proposed a new athletic training center for the University of Wyoming. The facility would cost forty million dollars and would be funded equally by the legislature and private donors.

Tom Burman is the Director of Athletics at U-W and says the facility would serve athletes from all U-W sports-teams. He also says it could attract business from Olympic-level athletes.

Wyoming House For Historic Women - Laramie

Wyoming House for Historic Women

The Louisa Swain Foundation was established in 2001 (under the former name of The Laramie Foundation). 

Since its inception the Foundation has funded construction of a large plaza and the Wyoming House for Historic Women in historic downtown Laramie, WY.  The centerpiece of the plaza is a life-sized bronze sculpture of Louisa Swain, who on September 6, 1870, became the first woman to cast a ballot under laws giving women full equality to men.  Her ballot was cast just one block from the plaza.
