The site that would come to be known as Cheyenne, Wyoming was first established on July 5, 1867. Many flocked to the area early on due to the fact that it was along the path of the then under construction Union Pacific Railroad. Cheyenne’s early rapid population growth earned it the nickname “Magic City of the Plains.” Cheyenne’s early population growth turned out not to be an aberration, because as of the 2010 census, the population was 59,466, making it the most populous city in the state. In addition to being Wyoming’s most populous city, Cheyenne is also the state’s capital.
Cheyenne is located near Crow Creek and Dry Creek in Laramie County. The major highways near Cheyenne include I-25 running north and south and I-80 running east and west. It is home to F.E. Warren Air Force Base, one of the nation’s oldest active military bases. Distribution centers for both Lowe’s and Wal-Mart are located just outside of town. In addition, Sierra Trading Post, Great Lakes Airlines and Taco John’s are all headquartered in Cheyenne. However, Cheyenne may be most well-known for being the home to the “Daddy of ‘em all,” the Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo, which has the distinction of being the largest outdoor rodeo in the nation.
With its varying roles as a distribution center and transportation hub combined with its cowboy culture, best represented by its being home to the largest outdoor rodeo in the nation, and its status as state capital, Cheyenne is rarely short on hustle and bustle. However, with Cheyenne having so many different business, government and recreational activities crossing paths, the chances of a car accident, bike accident, bus accident or some other type of personal injury occurring are that much more likely. If you or someone you love are suffering because of injuries caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
