Jerry Sheehan had the foresight to build an out-of-the ordinary hotel in an isolated western town. Mr. Sheehan was no stranger to the hotel business. Prior to opening the Fremont Hotel he was the proprietor of The Bridge Hotel.

The Fremont started out as two-story- structure with a lobby, office, dining room, and billiard hall on the first floor.... With the coming of the railroad, in 1906 two more stories were added, making it the first four-story building in Wyoming. (Submitted on July 15, 2016, by Barry Swackhamer of San Jose, California.)
