Whipple-Lacey House


Read All About It:

The Whipple-Lacey House, constructed in 1883, is located three blocks east of the center of downtown Cheyenne. The house was built by I. C. Whipple, early Cheyenne banker, business entrepreneur, and stockman. Later it was the home of Judge John W. Lacey. The house was built of red brick and trimmed with cut stone in a style that has been called Modernized French Villa, however, Victorian and other styles are apparent. The significance of the house rests in its association with two of the most important pioneer figures in the history of southeastern Wyoming, Ithamar C. Whipple and John W. Lacey.
