Long Description:
From the sign on the building:

"The Tivoli Building was established by the Richardson Brothers in 1892. The Tivoli has been a landmark since Cheyenne's early days when the town was known as the "Paris of the West." It was a regular hangout for visiting cowboys during Cheyenne Frontier Days. In 1919 Sam Marchick purchased the building and turned it into a successful clothing store. When Prohibition ended it once again became a popular upscale beer garden. Sam came to America from Ostrovo, Poland in 1904 and lived in Denver for a short time before moving to Cheyenne. Accompanying him to Cheyenne were his wife Lillian and their six children: Joseph, Benjamin, Jacob, Mary, Arline and Faye. Sam was a visionary who helped to establish Cheyenne as a commercial center. As he prospered and bouth real estate, he bacame a leader in the Community. In 1915 he helped build Cheyenne's first Synagogue, located at 20th and Pioneer Avenue. The Marchick family owned the Tivoli building until 1976.
