Clearmont Day


June 22




Clearmont, WY 82835


The small town of Clearmont, located on the eastern border of Sheridan County, was once one of northern Wyoming’s busiest communities. Before the 1963 construction of the Interstate 90 bypass (connecting Gillette to Buffalo) Clearmont’s Black to Yellow Highway (US Highway 14) was the preferred route for travelers making the journey between the Black Hills and Yellowstone National Park. The community boasted two grocery stores, a lumber yard, restaurants, seven gas stations, and plenty of attractions to keep the traveling public occupied on the trip from Gillette to Sheridan. Times have changed, but there’s still plenty of history to explore in and around Clearmont.

In 1890, the Pratt & Ferris Cattle Company controlled the valley where Clearmont is located; farming and agriculture have been important to the region ever since.

Before Clearmont became a town in 1892, there was the town of Huson, complete with a cemetery, post office and local press. Huson ceased to exist in November 1892, just six months after its post office was established because the owners of the Burlington and Missouri Railroad Co. didn’t like a bend in the track and chose instead Clearmont as the location for its new station. A fire in the 1920s destroyed a row of buildings that included the Rock Hotel and Saloon, a meat market, and a popular confectionery store.

Today, Clearmont offers an interesting alternate route for travelers heading for Gillette or Devils Tower National Monument; take historic Highway 14 through Clearmont for a glimpse at stunning countryside, majestic mountain views, and quintessential small-town living. The area features unique attractions and curious history. The Clearmont Town Jail, built in 1922, is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places; the Ucross Foundation features an art gallery, and hosts exhibitions and a unique artists-in-residence program that draws participants from all over the world; The Ranch at Ucross is one of Wyoming’s most spectacular vacation destinations.
