Susan Wissler House

 

 
 

Read All About It:

Located among other false front buildings along Main Street in Dayton, the Susan Wissler house is a frame, false front structure constructed as a commercial building in 1885. The traditional storefront design is typical of late nineteenth and early twentieth century commercial architecture. In 1911 Susan Wissler was elected mayor of the small ranching community of Dayton, thus becoming the first woman mayor in Wyoming, and one of the first in the United States. Wissler served three terms as mayor and made great strides toward improving the quality of life in the town. She lived in the house at 406 Main Street from 1905-1915, encompassing her years in office.
