Blazing Trails

During the snowstorms that frequently come through our area all winter, most of us hunker down in our warm and dry homes. However, several Sheridan residents head into the snow and the mountains to prepare local ski trails for users.

Christmas Stroll

One of Sheridan's most beloved winter events is set for Nov. 28, as always, the day after Thanksgiving.

Main Street

By Sonja Caywood As an artist I paint our last vestige of "the West," as subjects thought to be permanent features of our landscape disappear. Asked to write about my favorite place in Sheridan County, I wanted to list several—artist Hans Kleiber brought friends to his "favorite place" in the Bighorns. After his death, folks [...]

Parks and pathways

With several miles of walking and biking pathways stretching the length of Sheridan, two large parks and a multitude of neighborhood parks, recreationists and leisure seekers need not look far in Sheridan. The town offers a total of 24 areas designated as park land, including six natural areas. Dayton, Story, Ranchester and Clearmont also have [...]


By Rindy West As the Development Director at the Sheridan Senior Center, I wholeheartedly believe that Sheridan is a place rich in destinations.  Those destinations are varied and bountiful and why I believe Sheridan attracts people from all over the globe to visit, and for many even to relocate.    At the center, we get [...]

Sheridan County Towns

Story, an unincorporated community 20 minutes south of Sheridan, sits on the banks of Piney Creek, according to Wyoming Travel and Tourism.
