Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 4, 1987):
As a territory, Wyoming had been the first major jurisdiction in the United States where women had full suffrage, and in 1889, an all-male group drafted a State constitution that included Women's suffrage. When Wyoming Territory applied for Statehood in 1890, Congress, after a close vote, passed the Wyoming Statehood bill. This building represents that symbolic victory for the Women's suffrage movement which commanded national attention.

The NHL is in good condition.

The state continues to conduct maintenance and rehabilitation work.
