History:

The city of Laramie is located in Albany County, Wyoming. Albany County was organized on December 16, 1868 from Laramie County in the Dakota Territory. On May 19, 1869, the territory’s government was formally organized.

Laramie has a population of approximately 28,000 residents. It is located west of Cheyenne, Wyoming along the Laramie River. Laramie was once the location of Fort Sanders.

Laramie is named after Jacques LaRamie, a French-Canadian trapper. Mostly all of the landmarks that are designated “Laramie” are named after him including the Laramie River, Fort Laramie, Mount Laramie, and more. The city itself sprung up following construction of the Union Pacific nearby. It was a “tent city” originally along the Overland Trail.

As with many early railroad towns, Laramie was rather hard to govern and suffered from lawlessness. The first mayor, M.C. Brown resigned after only 3 weeks in office, stating that the city was “ungovernable”. Tales of gunfights and lynchings are abundant in Laramie’s early history.

The Laramie Plains Civic Center building is currently used for community classes such as Kempo Karate and community theater. There are unverified rumors of a music teacher hanging himself somewhere on the north end of the building as well as a rumor of a woman with cancer who died in the building in teh 1970′s.

Paranormal Reports:

Electrical phenomena have been reported at the Laramie Plains Civic Center. Objects are said to move without explanation as well. Some locals claim that the civic center was built on a cemetery. We have not confirmed whether this information is accurate or not. The Green Hill Cemetery in Laramie, Wyoming is located about 10 blocks away, which is hardly noteworthy…just a fun fact, really.

Shadow people have been reported at the Laramie Plains Civic Center. Strange smells, disembodied footsteps, indian drumming, disembodied basketball games …as well as apparitions have been reported at this location.
