Wyman Memorial Plaque - Cheyenne Depot

The George A. Wyman Memorial Project is pleased to announce the installation of the Wyman memorial plaque at the Cheyenne Depot.  On June 4, 1903, Wyman arrived in Cheyenne about 10:30 at night.  He took his motorcycle to the baggage room of the Union Pacific Depot for storage before seeking lodging.  Read his account of June 4 - Across America on a Motor Bicycle.

Today, the Cheyenne Depot Museum is the "Heart of Cheyenne History"  It is Cheyenne's premier visitor and information center.  Pictured here is the Wyman memorial plaque displayed in the very baggage room he stored his motorcycle those many years ago.
