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. Sheridan is also a tourist center and the headquarters for Bighorn National Forest. A rodeo and a Native American celebration are held annually, and a historical museum is in the city. The Sheridan Inn (1893) is a national historic landmark. Nearby are a reproduction of Fort Phil Kearny (a post in the 1860s); and the Brinton Memorial Ranch, which commemorates Western art and culture.
