Read all about it

The Lehman-Tunnell house is located at the corner of 7th Street and Grand Avenue in Laramie. The house, constructed in 1891, generally presents a Queen Anne appearance. This two and one half story brick house is architecturally one of the finest late 19th century homes still standing in Laramie. Constructed by Frank Cook, it is associated with the lives of persons significant in local history, especially Edward Lehman, a prominent pioneer merchant, and also embodies the distinctive characteristics of the Queen Anne and late Victorian style widely used in that period. Mr. Cook also constructed several other important buildings in Laramie such as the Ivinson Mansion, many other stylish homes and some commercial structures. The house is one of a very few remaining to represent the style and flamboyance of Laramie’s early history.
