Description

The Fort Collins Daily Express reports on a sighting of Oscar Wilde at the Cheyenne train depot in March 1882. It is likely that Wilde was enroute by train from a lecture in Omaha, Nebraska to his first lecture stop in California in San Francisco. Wilde would later come through Cheyenne again before heading south to Denver for his first lecture in the State of Colorado. On this final leg of the trip, Wilde passed through Northern Colorado, though he never appears to have stepped foot off the train here.
