Cheyenne, WY – There goes the neighborhood, literally. Near the historic Governor's Mansion in Cheyenne, two vintage homes have been moved and others could join them. It's land that has been eyed for development, and some fear that could mean new buildings that don't match the surrounding neighborhood character, or even parking lots.

The area has been declared an historic district, but that doesn't prevent homes from being moved. Kelly Weidlich, a member of the historic preservation group Save Old Cheyenne, says that needs to change, before more of the city's history is sold off in piecemeal fashion.

"The whole block is losing its sense of place. The historic Governor’s Mansion was actually put in this neighborhood to be among the people. It's just sad to drive by and see empty space where all these homes used to be. It's devastating."

The Alliance for Historic Wyoming also is working to preserve the historic context of the neighborhood. The state and Wyoming donors spent more than $1 million to restore the mansion a few years ago. She says they've heard that the nearby medical center has been interested in the property, a center spokesman says they have not purchased the property and do not have a contract to purchase the property.
