Early in the morning of September 6, 1870, Louisa Ann Gardner Swain became the first woman in the world to cast a ballot under laws granting women the right to vote with full civil equality with men. This law was contained in the 1869 Wyoming Suffrage Act, the first of its kind anywhere in the world. The Wyoming Women’s History house was constructed in 2003 to memorialize these extraordinary events that gave Wyoming its nickname, “The Equality State”.

The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday during the summer from 1 pm to 5 pm.
