About Us

About Gillette, Wyoming

Gillette, Wyoming, is the county seat of Cambell County, Wyoming. Founded in 1891 as a railway town on the Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy Railroad, today, it is a vibrant community of more than 35,000 people, making it the third most populous city in Wyoming. Known as the Energy Capital of the Nation, Gillette made a name for itself in the coal mining industry, providing nearly 41% of the nation’s coal.

Today, travel and tourism play an important role in economic development. Visitors come to Northeastern Wyoming, stopping on their way to national parks and national monuments, including Devils Tower. Gillette is perfectly situated an hour from the tower to serve as a vacation hub. The growing culinary scene boasts Wyoming’s first meadery, and chefs use the local meats and produce to craft delectable dishes. What’s more, community and sports events are plentiful at venues, including the CAM-PLEX Multi Events Facilities, the Campbell County Recreation Center, revitalized historic Downtown Gillette, and more.

About Wright, Wyoming

Just 40 miles south of Gillette on Hwy. 59 is the small town of Wright, Wyoming, located in the heart of the Powder River Basin. The Wright family homesteaded the area in 1911, opening the first Post Office providing mail service to area ranchers. The community became known as Wright, Wyoming. In the 1970s, Atlantic Richfield built the Black Thunder Coal Mine, and the city grew.

Today, the population of around 1,800 welcomes you to experience a slice of Americana with a picturesque pond in the center of the town, one of the nation’s premier bison ranches, a quaint summer festival, and a rodeo hub all in one tiny town.

From the Centennial Museum to the Haycreek Golf Course to a rodeo at the Southern Campbell County Ag Complex, there is lots to do in Wright. Just outside of town is the Durham Bison Ranch, one of the nation’s largest bison operations you can tour. More than 2,500 bison are raised here, and its meat is shipped nationwide and brought down the street. Wright’s Centennial Museum’s exhibits range from pioneer history and Westward expansion to the mining and energy industries in Campbell County.
