     History
    The Aladdin Tipple in Crook County, Wyoming, was constructed as part of the Aladdin coal mining operations.

    In 1899, M.S. Kemmerer, who was at the time developing the Kemmerer coalfields, bought the controlling interest in Aladdin mines and the Wyoming and Missouri River Railroad. Kemmerer's purchase of the mines and railroad ensured the venture would have sound financial backing.

    When coal supply dwindled, the railroad was eventually abandoned.
     Media Coverage

     Future Plans
    The tipple itself will likely disintegrate over time. The site is preserved as historic site which has also fallen into disrepair.
