The Capitol North Historic District of Cheyenne was built between 1905-1930 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. This district presents a good blend of middle to upper income housing for the period. Many of the home styles are frame construction with clapboard siding, brick, and brick veneers that were common in the period. Several of the older buildings within the district were moved in from Fort D.A. Russell (now F.E. Warren Air Force Base) as the fort changed from wooden structures to the brick ones you see today.
This district, consisting of approximately 12 city blocks, is located primarily to the North of the State Capitol. Because of its proximity to the State Capitol and other State buildings, this district provided housing for officials of the State to include Governors, State Legislatures, lawyers, judges, and other related professionals.
Some of the key buildings in this district include: The Luke Voorhies House, 2819 Thomes, 1884; The Charles Hirsig House, 2800 Carey Avenue, 1922; The J.B. True House, 2800 Capitol Avenue, 1922; The Cyrus Beard House, 2710 Carey Avenue, 1911; The Moses P. Keefe House, 210 W. 27th Street, 1910; Governor Leslie Miller Home, 108 W. 27th Street, 1908; The W.E. Chaplin House, 2622 Central Avenue, 1910; The A.A. Underwood House, 214 W. 26th Street, 1905;
