It is my privilege as Mayor to welcome you to our website. If you are a resident or visitor to our city or are simply visiting our website I hope that you will find it both interesting and informative. Our citizens are proud of Sheridan and we know that by working together we can make Sheridan even better!
Our vision of Sheridan is a beautiful, safe city that promotes a high quality of life and a sound economy.
Located halfway between Yellowstone Park and Mount Rushmore, Sheridan welcomes visitors from all over the globe. With the Big Horn Mountains as a backdrop, Sheridan is home to world class fly fishing, hiking, camping and winter sports. We have a beautiful, vibrant downtown – a shoppers’ delight! We also have over 13 miles of biking/walking paths, the WYO Theater, museums, fantastic restaurants, a top notch rodeo – - and so much more.
Sheridan enjoys a rich history. In June of 1876 General Crook and his troops were camped on Little Goose Creek south of Sheridan. They were fishing on Teepee Creek when they saw smoke to the north which as it turned out was coming from the Battle of the Little Big Horn where General Custer met his demise.
As you enjoy the scenic vistas of the Sheridan community, I’m sure you’ll be enthralled, as were General Crook and his troops, with the natural beauty of this place we call home
