Union Pacific construction crews laid the track connecting Laramie to the rest of the country on May 4, 1868. A few passengers arrived the same day and regular service began less than a week later. The arrival of the railroad inspired entrepreneurs to build more permanent structures in what had been a “Hell on Wheels” tent city. For just a few months, Laramie was the western terminal of Union Pacific Railroad. However, even after track was laid to points further west, Laramie’s reputation and population continued to grow.
