Historic Sheridan Inn to Close Its Doors
An historic Wyoming landmark is shutting down.
The board of the Sheridan Heritage Center, which has been raising money to continue to renovate and operate the Sheridan Inn, says the historic building will close on October 1st.
The Heritage Center had hoped that revenue from the 1893 Grille and Spirits bar and restaurant would provide funding to complete renovation of the upper floors of the hotel. The plan was to ultimately reopen the hotel to overnight guests.
The hotel was built in 1893 and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1964. The building has also been used for special events, which will all have to be moved after October 1st.
The non-profit Heritage Center says it is not giving up on efforts to eventually re-open the hotel. But, the renovations will cost about $2-Million to finish, and the board is solicting ideas on how to raise that money.
