Tie Siding is a tiny unincorporated community in far southeastern Albany County, Wyoming, United States, approximately eight miles north of the Colorado border. It was strategically located to service the expansion of railroad systems in the West from the late 1860s to early 1900s. Tie Siding interacted with such nearby communities as Virginia Dale, LaPorte and Pingree Park. At an elevation of 7,694 ft. and located at latitude 41.080N and longitude -105.506W, Tie Siding consists today of only a combination U.S. Post Office/Flea Market.

Although the population of Tie Siding is very low and unknown from the 2010 census, as of the year 2000 Tie Siding consisted of 23 residents. In the year 1886, Edward Ivinson got off the train and decided that he wanted to build his house and hospital in Tie Siding, but ended up building it in Laramie a few miles north. He built the Ivinson mansion there, and his intention was to be elected Governor that year and make the mansion the Governor's house. Because it was the first year for Wyoming to be classified as a state, he also planned to make Laramie the capital of Wyoming. Ivinson did not win the gubernatorial election, however, and Cheyenne became the state capital.
