Swan Land and Cattle Company Headquarters, in Chugwater, Wyoming, was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1964.[2][3]

The surviving buildings include the ranchhouse, barn, and commissary, for the company organized in Scotland in 1883.[2] This company was a foreign concern that flourished in the American West, during the 1880s, when the range cattle industry was profitable. The company operated for over 70 years.[2]

It is located on Wyoming Highway 313.
