Long Description:
"Mount View (the Brooks-Yonkee House) was built in 1911-1912 for Lyman Herbert Brooks, a prominent Sheridan businessman and politician. It was designed by architect Glenn Charles McAlister of Billings, Montana and represents the Prairie School style of architecture. West of the main house is the carriage house in which the Brooks family lived during construction of their home, and later was used for the Brooks' horses and carriages.

Mount View is significant for its association with Lyman Brooks. Brooks pursued a variety of commercial interests including cattle ranching, hardware, lumber, banking, and real estate. He was also active in civic and social endeavors and served in the Wyoming State House of Representatives and on the Board of Trustees for the University of Wyoming. He was among a small group of entrepreneurs who helped shape the early economic growth of the city of Sheridan. The house is also significant as an outstanding example of Prairie School architecture and as a work of a master architect, Glenn McAlister. McAlister designed a number of important buildings in Montana and Wyoming." ~ Wyoming State Historic Preservation Office website
