Maggie PalmerPlayed by Chelah Horsdal
An educated, no-nonsense woman who came West to start a cattle ranch with her husband. After his death, she ignored her family’s entreaties to return home and instead grew the Palmer Ranch into one of the most successful operations of the Wyoming Territory. Maggie expanded her business holdings by building the Palmer Hotel, and is now the richest woman in Cheyenne. She speaks her mind with the frankness of a man, a trait that often puts her at odds with Durant.
