Coutant House

Coutant House Circa 1890.  The cabin was built on the east side of Table Mountain, south of Lander, by Wilbur Coutant.  His father, Dr. Charles G. Coutant, was Wyoming’s first historian. Parts of the “History of Wyoming” were researched and written in the house.  In 1899 the house was moved to Lander where it became the home of Eva Lamberson, who was known as Lander’s poet laureate.  

The Coutant House has been set aside to house traveling exhibits, art shows, and photographic displays.  During the summer of 2014 exhibits highlighting the earliest pioneers in the Lander Valley will be shown.  The first exhibit, the Cheney/Nalls Family, will open on June 9 and continue to July 6. 

If you are a descendent of an early pioneer in the Lander Valley and have stories handed down by your ancestors please contact the Museum of the American West.
