Sheridan, city (1990 pop. 13,900), seat of Sheridan co., N Wyo., on Goose Creek E of the Bighorn Mts., in a mineral, livestock, and irrigated farm region; inc. 1884. It is a regional trade and market hub. Dairy products, feeds, rope, lumber, saddles, and irrigation supplies are among its manufactures.
