  • Dereemer Ranch Historic District


    Read All About It:

    In 1888, Charles A. Dereemer was one of the early settlers on a small ranch in the Horse Creek region of Laramie County. Dereemer successfully utilized the prairie grasses around Horse Creek to transform his ranch into a successful operation. Many of the county's early ranchers on small tracks of land failed, yet Dereemer was able to contribute to the agricultural and economic growth of northwest Laramie County. The Dereemer Ranch complex is an exceptional representative example of a small ranch that developed in response to the burgeoning agriculture/industry of the county. The log and frame buildings within the complex, constructed in response to specific needs of the owners, embody the distinctive characteristics of a type, period and method of construction typical of high plains ranching.
