“Western” means different things to different people, and in Sheridan and the surrounding area you’ll find communities that honor their frontier past while embracing their multifaceted future. The area’s rich agricultural heritage remains alive in the many working and recreational ranches in the area, and our striking scenery and abundant wildlife remains unspoiled by the push of big-city development. Our community culture is growing as artisans flock to the area. Our natural resources industry is expanding with the development of new technologies, and our new high tech business park and high-level connectivity infrastructure is bringing in technology businesses.
