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.
