About Gillette

Enjoy the Nighlife

Residents of Gillette enjoy celebrating its rich history, natural surroundings, and cultural sophistication with plenty of museums, natural parks, and fun-for-everyone activities such as art shows at AVA Art Center, the Jazz Festival, and evenings at the Gillette Community Theater. Gillette residents enjoy locally sourced ingredients from nearby family farms prepared by their favorite chefs who feature inspired cuisine that's as savory as it is memorable.

Past & Present

Founded in 1891 and named after surveyor Edward Gillette, who discovered a shorter railroad route that saved five miles of track and thirty bridges from having to be constructed, that same knack for seeing opportunity where others do not is still alive and well in Gillette. Today, that entrepreneurial, trailblazing spirit thrives through the region's premier energy industry, world-class healthcare systems, the robust small business community, and stellar public schools.

Gorgeous Landscapes

With its famed rolling hills, towering mountains, and vast open plains dotted by columns of sunlight and cloud shadows, Gillette is truly where the West begins. Migrating herds of pronghorn, elk, buffalo, and grazing cattle famously outnumber the people living here, so it's no wonder Wyoming is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. From hiking and biking, to fishing and camping, it's easy to find your piece of peace in the beauty of wide-open Wyoming.
