Community Event:

100th anniversary of the bells of Laramie’s St. Matthew’s Cathedral!!

Save the dates for a once in a lifetime memory: Centennial of the Cathedral bells, chimes, and clock in the "new" tower (1916-1917) to be celebrated with two brief concerts on Saturday, September 16, at 11 a.m. and on Sunday, September 17, at 4:00 p.m.         The original five concerts were played over a period of three days. Music from the original concerts will be integrated with contemporary songs including "Ragtime Cowboy Joe," "Home on the Range," and Lennie Cohen's haunting "Alleluia." Mr. Punch Williamson, our resident expert on all mechanical and technical matters will give a brief description of the mechanics of this "amazing-century-old" machinery followed by a short concert of bell ringing by Punch, Cathedral organist Valentina Gavrilova, and long-time  bell ringer, Marilyn Pedrick.             The Cathedral has a special connection with the Ivinson Mansion because Edward & Jane were instrumental in Episcopal beginnings in Laramie and generous support throughout the years. The Ivinsons would probably have attended the 1917 concerts.


Our 2017 Evening

held on Saturday, August 19th was a Roaring '20's success! Lots of new faces came to celebrate and support this special repository of history. Thank you! Proceeds will help with our vision for expansion onto the Alice Hardie Stevens Center so that the reception space can be even more attractive and accommodating for our community and the many wedding parties who love this site!
