About Ferris Mansion

History:

George Ferris was a prominent businessman in Wyoming. He was a member of the House of Representatives in 1873. In 1875, he was a member of the Territorial Legislative Assembly and the Wyoming Constitutional Convention in Carbon County. George Ferris, at the pinnacle of his career, was the sole owner of the Ferris-Haggarty mine in the Grand Encampment copper mining district. The Ferris Mansion was designed in the Queen Anne style, which was popular during the Victorian era.

While the mansion was nearing completion a year after it's construction had begun, Ferris was killed near one of his mines. His widow, Julia, completed the construction of the building 3 years later in 1903.

Currently, the Ferris Mansion is a bed a and breakfast.
