Overview

Cheyenne is the State Capitol of Wyoming.

Cheyenne had its beginnings in 1867 with the building of the transcontinental Union Pacific Railroad. A U.S. Army Cavalry outpost was built nearby at Fort D.A. Russell (later Warren Air Force Base). The city was named for the local Indian tribe native to Southeastern Wyoming. The railhead at Cheyenne was a natural headquarters for the many cattle barons and cowboys of the area.

Cheyenne Area Code is 307.
