Kendrick Mansion Exhibits Focus on Politics, Scandals

This season’s exhibit on display at one of the state’s historic sites in the local area focuses on politics and scandals. Sheridan Media’s Leslie Stratmoen has the story.


Politics and scandals related to John B. Kendrick, a frontier cattle baron of Wyoming, when he was elected to the United States senate for the first time in 1916, is the focus of the new exhibit at the historic Kendrick Mansion in Sheridan this season. Site Curator Sharie Prout previewed one of the scandals Kendrick’s opponents used in an attempt to damage his reputation.

Another part of the exhibit this year includes the hand-written notes taken by Kendrick’s wife Eula describing how the food was prepared and presented for dinners at the White House.

The Flemish Revival style mansion is located on the grounds of the Trail End Historic Site on Clarendon Avenue and will be open for the summer season, starting tomorrow, from 1-4 daily. The admission fee is $2, which doubles in price for all those who are not residents of Wyoming.
