Although the population of Tie Siding is very low and unknown from the 2010 census, as of the year 2000 Tie Siding consisted of 23 residents. In the year 1886, Edward Ivinson got off the train and decided that he wanted to build his house and hospital in Tie Siding, but ended up building it in Laramie a few miles north. He built the Ivinson mansion there, and his intention was to be elected Governor that year and make the mansion the Governor's house. Because it was the first year for Wyoming to be classified as a state, he also planned to make Laramie the capital of Wyoming. Ivinson did not win the gubernatorial election, however, and Cheyenne became the state capital.
