Community and County Profiles

Like many places in northeastern Wyoming, Sheridan County enjoys a rich local history. But the county is committed to its future, and has invested in infrastructure and technology to ensure it is ready to take advantage of tomorrow’s opportunities.. Sheridan serves as a professional service hub for the region. It is also home to a  historic ranching culture that took root here in the early days of westward expansion. At the same time, our high-tech business park and incubator has helped spur the growth of a technology sector.

With abundant options for indoor and outdoor recreation, Sheridan serves as a magnet for visitors, and is regularly featured by the media as a top destination in the region to visit—or to settle.
