• Wyoming Territorial Prison State Historical Site - Laramie, Wyoming

      See where Butch Cassidy, Dan Parker, Clark "the Kid" Pelton and other notorious outlaws were housed in strap iron cells. The buildings were used for 30 years in Wyoming's early days - first as a territorial prison, then as a state penitentiary. Later it became an experiment station for the University of Wyoming College of Agriculture. The site was fortunately restored to its original and is now run by the Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resources.
