Sheridan, WY Honored as Top Ten True Western Town by True West Magazine!

Buffalo Bill Cody is part of the foundation of Sheridan, Wyoming. He was part owner of the magnificent Sheridan Inn – in operation to this day – and he auditioned acts from its veranda.

Sheridan is a place where Old West history and culture come alive.

This is one reason Sheridan is #10 among True West Magazine’s 2017 Top Western Towns. Deadwood, SD won the top honor. These towns will be featured in the February 2017 issue, hitting newsstands on January 3, 2017.

The Sheridan Inn is just one of the city’s many attractions. The Sheridan WYO Rodeo is in its 87th year in 2017, bringing in top cowboys and cowgirls from around the world. King’s Saddlery is also world-renowned, providing top quality leather goods for working cowboys and city slickers alike.

The Sheridan County Museum and nearby Fort Phil Kearny State Historic Site offer a glimpse at life in Northeast Wyoming during the Indian Wars. Numerous battles and skirmishes left an indelible imprint on the area.

“Sheridan has long been a favorite destination for Old West fans,” explains True West Executive Editor Bob Boze Bell. “The history is amazing, and the local residents do a great job celebrating and sharing that history. Sheridan is a Top True Western Town.”

This is the twelfth year True West has presented this annual award. Editors base their selection on criteria demonstrating how each town has preserved its history through old buildings, museums and other institutions, events, and promotions of historic resources.

True West magazine is in its 65th year of leading the way in presenting the true stories of Old West adventure, history, culture and preservation. For subscriptions and more information, visit TWMag.com or call 888-687-1881.
