Durlacher Mansion

Laramie, Wyoming

Durlacher Mansion dates to 1878, when Laramie was just beginning to transform from an untamed territorial outpost to an organized town. It was built by Simon Durlacher, a renowned clothier and community leader. This prominent residence sustained major alterations in 1939 when it was converted to a church, but a renovation for office use restored its Victorian charm. With support from the National Park Service's Historic Preservation Tax Incentives program, the $151,000 project included repairing the wood windows and wrap-around porch, repairing and repainting the exterior cladding materials, and refurbishing the interior to reclaim its original character.
