Dayton, Wyoming

Welcome to Dayton, Wyoming

The town of Dayton frames U.S. Highway 14 as it enters the foothills of the Big Horn Mountains in northwestern Sheridan County, approximately 17 miles from the county seat of Sheridan.

Incorporated in 1906, the town has a strong agricultural history. Fertile land and abundant water attracted many ranchers and farmers to the area. Timber harvested in the mountains above Dayton was hewn into railroad ties and floated to Dayton and points beyond via a wooden flume, and the Dayton Flour Mill provided the first electric power in the area.

Dayton's population has grown as families move to the area seeking a more relaxed, rural lifestyle.

Recently, the Town and the TRVCC joined together to do a Parks and Recreation Community Survey for Dayton
and they were put into Dayton mail boxes.

It is a one page survey to find out how Dayton Parks are being used and if there are other things people would like to see in the parks.  The survey also asks whether or not you live in the Town of Dayton-we still want your opinion even if you live out of town.

There are extra copies at the Town Hall, TRVCC Dayton, and The Gallery in case you accidentally tossed yours and would like to share your opinion.  You can return them to those places or put them in the mail. Thank you for reading and hopefully your time to complete and turn in the survey.
