Visit the seat of a cattle ranching empire of Texas cowboy turned U.S. Senator & Wyoming Governor John B. Kendrick. Trail End State Historic Site features a view of early 20th century lifestyle. Designed by Montana architect Glenn Charles McAlister, the mansion remains on of the few western examples of Flemish Revival architecture. “Trail End” as it was named by Kendrick is operated by the State of Wyoming Parks & Cultural Resources. This historic house museum features many of the original furnishings and personal items of the family.

Kendrick was an orphan who trailed cattle to Wyoming from Texas. He was self-educated and through cattle and business ventures became one of the county’s wealthiest men. The land for Kendrick Park which sits below the mansion was donated by Kendrick to the City of Sheridan.
