The Oldest Restaurant In Wyoming Has A Truly Incredible History
Wyoming is full of history, dating back to the days of the Wild West. When American immigrants were making their way westward looking for better opportunities for themselves and their families, many settled here in Wyoming… after all, the Sawtooth Mountains are pretty intimidating, and not everyone wanted to cross them. Many of the earliest historical structures that these colonizers left behind can still be found scattered throughout the state. One of these structures is a bar/restaurant in the oldest town in Wyoming, and it just so happens to be the oldest bar in the state. Visit Miners and Stockmen’s, the oldest restaurant in Wyoming, to enjoy a delicious dinner surrounded by Wyoming history.
