Weston County is a wonder to behold. Sitting up against the western gateway to the Black Hills with the Thunder Basin Grassland spreading to the southwest, Weston County offers gorgeous natural surroundings and plenty of outdoors activities for the family to enjoy. With friendly people, beautiful scenery, and a thriving economy, there’s a reason why their slogan is "Best Town on Earth." With the CAN-AM highway US 85, US highway 16 and The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad passing through Upton, opportunities for businesses abound. The Upton Logistics Center is one of the more developed industrial parks in the region. The county’s 1.5 million acres have various uses, with by far the largest amount—more than 1.2 million —used as range.
