Wind River Mountaineer

Wind River Mountaineer Newspaper - 1885

Issac C. Wynn printed his first edition of the Wind River Mountaineer newspaper, January 1, 1885.  He started his business in a very modest log building that was set back from Lander’s Main Street.

The paper featured local news and a variety of advertisements.

Mr. Wynn, more than likely, at the time did not realize his newspaper would end up being a valuable historical record of frontier life in Lander.
