Sheridan Wyoming Brothel Token Eva Young Proprietress Confirmed Prostitute :
This is a neat old genuine brothel token from Eva Young, Proprietress.
The Sheridan County Public Library in Sheridan, Wyoming has compiled a list of people arrested for prostitution-related activities from 1909-1912. It notes that Eva Young was arrested in 1909 for being an INMATE (apparently meaning she was a resident in a "house of Ill Fame") and then again in 1912 for KEEPING, which sounds like she was the Proprietress of such place. The pdf also apparently lists some brothels, one being "Eva Young's place on Grinnell." The list is available online, but I took a pic of the appropriate page and included it. would not allow me to credit the source with a link, but it was the top hit when I did a Google search for "eva young sheridan wyoming."
The token is in very nice condition--see pic for particulars. Aluminum / Round / 29 mm.
