Located at the Big Horn Mountain range near Shoshone National Forest in Wyoming, this town exemplifies the American western lifestyle with friendly smiles on all corners.

The event eventually led to the end of the bitter rivalry between cattlemen and sheep ranchers.

Worland, WY

Founded in 1906, Worland is the perfect modern western community, offering a “good life” to residents. Historically, town founders were eager to be near railroad tracks that ran west of Big Horn River. Worland was relocated in 1906 when trains had begun running east on either side of the river, and they agreed that this would bring more opportunity for commerce.

Because of its popular location, Worland is ranked the 13th largest city by population, bringing booming businesses and inviting attractions. Wyoming Sugar Company, Crown Cork & Seal, Pepsi-Cola, and MillerCoors have also set up locations in Worland. Worland boasts a prosperous and dependable business structure, which residents are very proud of.
