Sheridan in Sheridan County, Wyoming — The American West (Mountains)
Historic Sheridan Inn
The Inn was built by the railroad and the Sheridan Land Company. The railroad caused Sheridan to grow and prosper at the expense of other communities in the area.
Like many other visitors from the East, "Miss Kate" Arnold arrived by train. She was employed at the Inn from 1901 until 1965. Some people believe that her spirit still watches over the Inn.
Erected by Sheridan County Centennial Committee.

This historic inn, now on the National Register of Historic Places, opened its doors on May 27, 1893 complete with electrical power which ran from a coal-fired threshing machine engine. A whistle would be blown at midnight to remind everyone that the building’s 200 lights should be turned off. (Submitted on December 8, 2015, by Barry Swackhamer of San Jose, California.)
