Cheyenne VA hospital named to register of historic places

Jun 18, 2013 - The Associated Press

CHEYENNE -- The Veterans Affairs hospital in Cheyenne has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The VA Medical Center is nearly 80 years old. The brick complex stands out because of its tile roof and Spanish colonial revival architecture.

The hospital had a maximum capacity of 133 beds when it opened in 1934. The hospital since then has undergone a number of expansions and renovations that have remained true to the original design.

Wyoming now has 537 properties on the historic register.

Other recent additions include the Snow Train Rolling Stock in Laramie's Railroad Heritage Park and St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Sheridan.
