The Wyoming city of Rock Springs is situated in Sweetwater County. Rock Springs was established as a mining town in 1888 and bills itself as “Home of 56 Nationalities,” due to the fact that the city was the destination for hundreds of immigrants from all over the globe who came to find work in the coal mines and on the railroads. In honor of its heritage, the city celebrates International Day every year in the summer, a festival which touts foods, costumes, and traditions of the people whose ancestors populated the area. Sheridan is quite close to the site of General George Armstrong Custer’s Last Stand in the Battle of Little Bighorn.
