  • Hynds Lodge


    Read All About It:

    Hynds Lodge, constructed in 1922, has been of continuous importance in the social development and youth activities of Cheyenne. The Lodge is named for Harry P. Hynds, a colorful Wyoming pioneer businessman who funded its construction. In many ways typical of the turn-of-the-century American businessman, Hynds' eclectic commercial interests were accompanied by a strong sense of civic responsibility. The Lodge represents a high point of his philanthropic endeavors. Primarily used as a recreational camp for Wyoming Boy Scouts, the Lodge has also been used by area churches and social groups. Architecturally unique in its granite masonry, the Lodge is symbolic of the opulence of Cheyenne in the early decades of this century. Hynds Lodge still fulfills its original function as a recreational site and today is part of the Curt Gowdy State Park. Hynds Lodge symbolizes the transition of Cheyenne from frontier community to modern city.
