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 Brentwood, California.)
