About this Tour
Discover downtown Sheridan, Wyoming, on this audio walking tour. You will learn the history of Sheridan, a vibrant and engaging community envisioned by John Loucks in 1882 and a gateway to the Bighorn National Forest.
Loucks' dreams and visions quickly molded into reality. For more than 125 years, Sheridan Main Street has welcomed residents and visitors alike, making it a thriving place of commerce and an enjoyable destination.
This tour will accompany you downtown and share some of Sheridan's stories and sites.

Sites along this tour include Rotary Park, Kendrick Park, Sheridan Heights Reservoir, and many more.
