The Oldest Bar In Wyoming Has A Fascinating History
The incredible history of the Wild West is on display in Wyoming, and if you know where to go, you can step right back in time. The oldest bar in Wyoming is still standing, and you can visit to treat yourself to a delicious cowboy meal and sip a glass of whiskey like our forefathers once did.
Hartville is Wyoming's oldest incorporated town that still exists, though it's quieted down since the mining boom ended.
Still, you can find the oldest bar in Wyoming here at Miners and Stockman's Pub.
This wild west spot is the last of the establishments left from the Fort Laramie Trading Post!
The Trading Post helped local towns prosper during the days of gold mining in Wyoming. Throughout the years, Miners and Stockman's has been a hideout for outlaws, cattle rustlers and other characters of the west. Prohibition never stopped these Wyomingites from having a pint or a shot with their meals — the downstairs basement was a local speakeasy!
Today, you can enjoy some of Wyoming's finest food in this historic pub.
It might be hard to believe that you can get a bacon-wrapped filet with truffle-whipped potatoes in an old cowboy saloon, but that's just what you'll find here, along with tasty seafood dishes, pastas, and some more casual lunch grub.
On a nice day, be sure to sit out on the porch and enjoy the panoramic views of the Wyoming wilderness.
You'll see Wyoming's oldest jail still standing in the backyard. Can you imagine the outlaws the cells once held?
Make it a point to visit Hartville and Miners and Stockman's! There's no better place to step back in time than right here.
You can find the oldest bar in Wyoming at 608 Main St., Hartville, WY 82215. It's worth the drive!
