From the Mayor
Cheyenne is the Capital City of the Old West. It’s citizens and those of the state are proud of its heritage and its role in the growth and development of the West. The pioneering spirit of the West as we know it would not exist but for the extension of the Union Pacific Railroad though, and heroic spirit of the men and women of Fort D.A. Russell in, Cheyenne.
To commemorate this heritage, I’m very pleased to launch the Capitol Avenue Bronze Project. The project will place bronze statues honoring the heritage of the city and state along Capitol Avenue from the historic train depot to the steps of the Capitol. The bronzes will be a permanent tribute to “The Magic City of the Plains,” the state of Wyoming, and the pioneering spirit of its people.
Mayor Patrick Collins
