ROCK SPRINGS — Don Anselmi had a dream. But sometimes dreams were hard to come by in 1965 in the historic railroad town of Rock Springs, Wyoming.
He dreamed about a big hotel in a little town of 6,000 people. Reason for his dream was the audacious news that the largest highway project in United States history was poised to put a major east-west link through Sweetwater County. Anselmi thought his hotel project could be a success.
