Laramie, Wyoming is an eclectic town comprised of college-town vibrancy, Western history and lore, and epic outdoor adventure. The home of the Wyoming Cowboys and the famous Bucking Horse "Steamboat".
Tidbit - Laramie derived its name from a French/Canadian trapper named Jacques La Ramie.
The town was established in 1868 with the advancing of the Union Pacific Railroad.
Laramie had some wild early years of untamed western lawlessness but then settled into the normal rhythms of a frontier town. Laramie is situated on a high plateau between two mountain ranges making it a great fit for a warm and rugged Rambouillet yarn.
