WY House for Historic Women

The Wyoming House for Historic Women in downtown Laramie honors historic women of Wyoming. Louisa Swain, in September 1870, was the first woman in the US to cast a ballot under laws granting women and men equal voting rights. Martha Symons Boies became the first woman in the US appointed as a Bailiff. Eliza Stewart was the first woman formally subpoenaed to serve on a court jury.

Unfortunately this museum doesn’t open until the 15th of June, so I was not able to go in. But I am honored to have visited the place where the first woman voted in the US.
