    A block north of Cedar is a curious volunteer garden park with an wrought iron arch that says Soroptimist Park. The park is located between two abandoned commercial buildings, of which there are many on this side of Rawlins. The park is so small that photography was difficult, but I noticed that work had been started and remained unfinished in areas, suggesting a small pool of labor and money was involved. I liked the concept and the exposed brick walls of the neighboring buildings.

    Ferris Manion

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The beautiful Queen Anne Victorian was built 1903 and owned by Mrs. Ferris until her death in 1931. Mrs. Ferris was the widow of George Ferris, who was a hotel developer and involved in mining and sheepherding. He died from a buggy accident. Mrs. Ferris lived in the mansion until her death in 1931. It fell into disrepair and was apartments for some time. It has been beautifully restored, and serves as a lovely Bed & Breakfast. It’s said to be haunted by Mrs. Ferris younger son who died from a gun accident. So very sad!
