The exposed rock wall in front of you once formed part of an early Cheyenne Reservoir constructed in the mid 1880's. Water came by wooden pipe across the USDA Agriculture Research Station, Warren Air Force Base and Frontier Park. From here it was piped to a steam powered pump station where the present library now stands.
The reservoir had a wooden roof from where patrons of the Frontier Days would watch rodeo activities. By 1935 the roof deteriorated and was removed. The reservoir was then filled with dirt for safety. By then Cheyenne has other water reservoirs for municipal uses. For many years the site appeared to be an odd dirt mound. The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens exposed this corner of the reservoir as part of its landscape in 1989.
