Kiwanis Springs: once a respite for thirsty cars and people in Telephone Canyon

Kiwanis Springs: once a respite for thirsty cars and people in Telephone Canyon

In the 1920s, a Laramie Kiwanis Club member had an idea to develop a picnic area with a water fountain in Telephone Canyon. At that time, the “Lincoln Highway” was mostly unpaved, but the route through the canyon  was the “improved” road to Laramie from Cheyenne, as opposed to the former auto route to Tie Siding and then back up to Laramie.
