This time to Lost Cabin, Wyoming for a tour of The Big Tipi, aka J.B. Okie’s mansion. Known as the Sheep King of Central Wyoming, he was an intelligent businessman with big plans.
I’ve driven past this house FOREVER… Well, ever since I’ve been married… and have wondered about it. I’ve wanted to go inside and see what was left… and today, thanks to a family friend, we had a tour. All of the original furnishings were sold by the former owners… but the house definitely retains its charm.
It is owned by ConocoPhillips but the caretaker and his wife gave us the tour.
Great lights (converted to electric, of course), call buttons that ran to colored lights in the servant’s quarters (not the bells of Downton Abbey!), and an intercom system from the second floor to the kitchen (breakfast in bed, anyone?)
Thanks, P., for getting us this tour!
