Cheyenne, Wyoming

Cheyenne, the capital of the state of Wyoming, USA, is located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, 1,850 feet above sea level, with 63,624 residents (U.S. Census, 2017).


Cheyenne is a railway hub and regional trade center. Railway workshops, oil refineries and the chemical industry are important industries. Frontier Days and The Old West Museum commemorate the pioneer days.


Cheyenne was founded in 1867 by the Union Pacific Railroad, named after the indigenous cheyenne. The city became the capital of the Territory in 1869, and the state capital from 1890 when Wyoming became the state. Annual rodeo (Frontier Days) has been held in July since 1897. In the pioneer era, Cheyenne was called “Heel on Wheels” because of the rough gangs that came with the railroad construction.
