For the health and safety of our visitors, older volunteers, and small staff with the COVID-19 virus concerns, we are are not offering tours of the Ivinson Mansion until further notice. We apologize for this, but we're such an intimate touring facility, the close quarters 

of the Museum make our guided tours a worry at this time. You can view recently posted, partial tours of the mansion if you will click on the Facebook symbol on this page. You can also click on the historic characters on this page to hear local history via uTube.

If you have any questions or concerns, please leave a phone message

at 307-742-4448

or contact us at our email shown above.

COVID restrictions,


Our Victorian          

Teas on Tuesdays

were canceled because of CDC Guidelines for gatherings like the Teas. The food exchanges and social distancing recommendations cannot be accomplished with these events, and most of our volunteers who create and serve the Teas, as well as our Tea patrons are older, more-vulnerable populations. Events of this sort are listed as inside, higher risk public gatherings so we did not hold Teas this summer.  

Cheers for Volunteers

for April and then May


for this year until budget deficits get back on track.

The Unexpected Company

postponed its April production until much later in this year or in 2021. Please stay tuned for updates or other times to see these talented performers.
