What Is Trail End?

From its authentically furnished rooms to its finely manicured lawns, Trail End displays an elegantly different aspect of Wyoming's rich and colorful history.

Built in the Flemish Revival style, the 13,748 square foot mansion known as Trail End provides an intriguing glimpse into life during the period 1913 to 1933, primarily as seen through the eyes of the John B. Kendrick family.

This was a vibrant time when the world was undergoing radical changes in technology and society. The Kendricks participated in most of the seminal events of the era - World War One, the Jazz Age, the Great Depression, Suffrage, and Prohibition.

By utilizing original artifacts from the house and family, exhibits and displays throughout the home examine daily life, entertainment, interior design and changing technology in the early twentieth century. ​
