One of the oldest continuously running cattle operations in Central Wyoming was sold in December 2019 to Casper-based True Ranches. The nearly 17,000-acre parcel stands in the shadow of the Laramie Mountains and sprawls five miles southeast of Glenrock where it fronts portions of the North Platte River. The Carey clan, an influential family of cattlemen and politicians, founded the ranch in 1876. Both the patriarch and his son served terms as governor of the Equality State and in the US Senate. They also built the Carey Mansion, which still functions as the owner’s quarters. Seven other houses, including a log home, are arrayed around the property. The working cattle ranch is also home to white-tailed deer, mule deer, and antelope with some 1,200 acres under irrigation. The new owners ranked No. 46 on the 2019 Land Report 100.
