Published by one of Wyoming’s earliest settlers, George L. Holt, seven years before the territory achieved statehood, this detailed depiction of Wyoming shows it in a period of significant growth and transformation. The Union Pacific Railroad played a pivotal role in opening Wyoming up to immigration and settlement. Europeans were flocking to the territory in the latter portion of the nineteenth century. Unlike its neighbor to the south, Wyoming never experienced a gold and silver mining boom like Colorado; it did become a hub for coal mining in the 1880s. The region also enjoyed a robust cattle ranching industry that thrives to this day.
Holt established a drugstore in Cheyenne with his wife in 1867 when the Union Pacific reached the remote outpost and became a successful druggist, businessman, and publisher. Holt is only known to have published two maps in his career, both depicting Wyoming in 1883 and again in 1888. This relative scarcity sets this illustration apart and makes it a rare piece of cartographical history. The distinctive style and immediately recognizable aesthetic transports the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present.
Home to one of America’s most iconic natural landscapes, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, has attracted tourists since its establishment in 1872. This map was Illustrated by prominent American cartographers Fred and Frank Bond during one of the first cattle booms in Wyoming and is thought to be one of the earliest representations of Wyoming with considerable detail and accuracy.
