Women’s History House

Laramie | Rockies to Tetons

The Louisa Swain Foundation was established in 2001 (under the former name of The Laramie Foundation).

Since its inception the Foundation has funded construction of a large plaza and the Wyoming House for Historic Women in historic downtown Laramie, Wy. The centerpiece of the plaza is a life-sized bronze sculpture of Louisa Swain, who on September 6, 1870, became the first woman to cast a ballot under laws giving women full equality to men. Her ballot was cast just one block from the plaza.

The Wyoming House for Historic Women contains displays of the thirteen honored women and is the site to various conferences and lectures pertaining to women's history and issues.
