Clearmont, Wy: A Great Place to Call Home!
The Town of Clearmont is located in Sheridan County, just east of the merger of Highways 14 and 16, along the year-round Clear Creek.
With origins dating to cattlemen settlers in the 1880’s, farming and ranching define the small town of Clearmont today. Historical sites include the Clearmont Town Jail, built in 1922 and listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, along with the Veterans Memorial. It was built, along with a picnic area, with rocks from the Old Rock School, which had been a one-room rock school building preserved until it had to be taken down for safety concerns.
Clearmont has a number of small businesses that provide for residents' needs. In addition, several have found a productive niche in offering products elsewhere. One such business is the SageRidge Mill & Critters, a fiber processing and products business. Another is the Ucross Foundation Art Gallery, a cultural landmark of northern Wyoming set on a working ranch in Clearmont. It has been giving space and time to worldwide artists covering many disciplines. In addition, it sponsors and hosts educational programs, conferences, and special events at our public art gallery, which is a cultural landmark in northern Wyoming.
