Worland House

 

 
 

Read All About It:

Constructed in 1917 for C. C. Worland, a local prominent businessman, the Worland House is an outstanding example of the bungalow style which made a significant impact on building traditions throughout the United States. The style, which suited the Wyoming environment and was easily adapted to accept ''Prairie and Craftsman'' influence, quickly became popular with both the upper and middle class. Charlie Worland, son of the town's founder was a leading businessman who demonstrated a sharp talent for accumulating wealth. Worland ran a multifaceted business operation from his home in Worland which included interests in oil, gas, minerals, farming and ranching, and influenced the broad patterns of the community's commercial development. Charlie and Sadie Worland moved into their new home in 1918. While they lived there they entertained a great deal. The basement contained a huge open room in which dances were held. These dances were attended by many young people of the town. In 1925, the house was sold to the president of the Stockgrowers State Bank, G. C. Muirhead. His family lived there for 53 years, until 1978.
