HistoryThe history of Northeastern Wyoming is rich with Native Americans, Cowboys, Ranchers, Homesteaders, Oilmen and Railroad moguls. Gillette, Wyoming, became a town in 1892 as a temporary base camp for the Burlington and Missouri Railroad. The Lincoln Land and Livestock Company planned the town and sold the lots. The town was a success, with ranchers, cowboys, and homesteaders trying to make a life in the countryside surrounding the town. Cattlemen drove their herds through the historic town for sale and transportation to markets back east. Until the 1970's, Campbell County was primarily agricultural. The County experienced a large growth from homesteading during and after World War I. Coal has been important in the Powder River region since prior to the coming of Europeans. Natural outcropping occurs in the area which was utilized by Indians. In the 1970's, the coal industry expanded, as a result of the need for Wyoming's low sulphur coal, to the point that Campbell County now provides in excess of one-fifth of all coal mined in the United States. Additionally, the area is now involved with the production of coalbed methane gas and oil. Gillette is known as the energy capital of the nation because of it's coal and oil. It also boasts some world class rodeo cowboys today and throughout it's history. A thriving community with great schools, excellent business opportunities and strong community support.
