“The Mormon Row Historic District represents the determination of a group of Mormon families to build a community on the harsh, arid, high plains of Wyoming.

The oldest surviving buildings date to 1908.”I spent quite a bit of time milling around on the Library of Congress site, searching for photos, maps, and drawings of the Mormon Row district.

Click the overview drawing above to be able to see it much larger.Continue reading "Mormon Row: Historic Documentation"
