Cheyenne is the capital and most populous city of the US state of Wyoming and the county seat of Laramie County.

On July 5, 1867, General Grenville M. Dodge and his survey crew made a map of the place known as Cheyenne, in Dakota Territory (now, Wyoming Territory). This site was chosen as the point at which the Union Pacific Railroad crossed Crow Creek (Hell on Wheels season 4), a tributary of the South Platte River.

Cheyenne was named for the American Indian Cheyenne nation, one of the most prominent Great Plains tribes.

The construction of the Union Pacific Railroad directed by Thomas ‘Doc’ Durant (actor Colm Meaney in Hell on Wheels TV show) brought great prosperity to the region, when on November 13 1867, they reached Cheyenne. The population at the time numbered over 4,000 and grew quickly.

They were part of this population of railroad workers, prostitutes, men seeking fortune, gamblers, and outlaws: Cullen Bohannon (actor Anson Mount), Elam Ferguson (Common), Eva (Robin McLeavy), Mickey McGinnes (Phil Burke), Ruth (Kasha Kropinski)… Or people very similar to them.

Cheyenne, like most of the rest of Wyoming, is semi-arid. Winters are cold and moderately long, but relatively dry, with a December average of 28.8 °F (−1.8 °C). However, the cold is often interrupted, with chinook winds blowing downslope from the Rockies that can bring warm conditions. Spring and autumn are quick transitions, and summers are warm.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
