Cheyenne Historic Preservation Board Requesting Historic Information

CHPB Logo

CHEYENNE – The Cheyenne Historic Preservation Board has enthusiastically launched their survey to expand the existing Capitol North Historic District. Terracon Consultants, the consulting cultural resources firm for the project, has concluded their first survey of the potential expansion area and will now initiate the comprehensive task of historic research.


The Board is requesting that any property owners in the expansion area who possess historic information on their house, to please share it with the City to assist with research efforts. This research can range from:


  • when the house was originally built
  • who the house was built by
  • property owners over the years
  • changes made to the property
  • historic photos

All information will be compiled by City staff and shared with the consultants. The research will assist the consultants in better understanding this neighborhood and will ultimately be used to write the final report along with the National Register of Historic Places nomination, the encompassing goal for the project.


The current district is roughly bound by West 26th Street on the south, West 29th Street on the north, Thomes Avenue on the west, and Warren Avenue on the east. The expansion will look at the blocks roughly bound by West 29th Street on the south, Pershing Boulevard on the north, Bent Avenue on the west and Warren Avenue on the east. This expansion could potentially double the size of the historic district.


A map detailing the historic district and its potential expansion can be found below.
