Welcome to the Smith Mansion Preservation Project. 

The famous Smith Mansion sits along the Buffalo Bill Scenic Byway, approximately 30 miles East of Yellowstone National Park. Located in the heart of Wapiti Valley Wyoming, the Smith Mansion is surrounded by wild back country and beautiful wilderness.

The Mansion is a landmark to the locals, tourists or anyone with a real interest in the home. This legendary structure holds a significant value to the town of Wapiti Valley.

SMPP is currently seeking donations for our upcoming Silent Auction, Aug 26, 2017.

(As donations come in we are posting photos of those items on our Facebook Page, Smith Mansion Preservation Project)



Last year's tours (2016) gathered over $3000.00 in donations! Thank you again to everyone who supported us! 100% of last year's tour donations benefited the preservation of the Smith Mansion. 

The work was completed last fall. A portion of a retaining wall was completed on the south side of the mansion and support beams were added to the smaller staircase. Back fill still needs to be completed. And we have the material for that as well. We also were able to purchase some of the materials for a floor to be added where the swinging bed is, to cover the old wood cutting pit. This room is located on the SouthEast corner of the bottom floor.


The Smith Mansion Website has had well over 10,000.000 hits to our site since October, 2009.

SMPP also has followers and supporters
from over 40 Countries, and counting!!
