Hitching Post Inn to be purchased after being vacant for years

By  | 

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A private developer in Wyoming has closed a deal with the city of Cheyenne to purchase an inn that closed in 2009 amid financial trouble.

The Hitching Post Inn and Conference Center was a social hub for lobbyists and members of the state Legislature who stayed there during the annual session.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reported that the purchasing agreement signed by private developer John Koehler was expected to be finalized in mid-April, but could be pushed back amid coronavirus concerns.

The Cheyenne City Council plans to address the topic.
