Wyoming Apartments for Rent
The state of Wyoming has a population of just over 515,000 people; it's the least populous state in the union. In the 1800s the territory's population grew when the Union Pacific Railroad came to town; the railroad played a part in expanding the cattle industry in the state, because it enabled goods to get to consumers in the east fast enough. A source of pride for Wyomingites is that their Yellowstone National Park, site of Old Faithful and home to elk, buffalo, and excellent camping and hiking, was the first national park in the country; it was founded in 1872. Nearly half of the land in the state is managed by the U.S. government, by agencies including the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management.
Tourism is one of the state's biggest industries: it's home to other natural draws such as Grand Teton National Park, Devil's Tower National Monument, and Fossil Butte National Monument. Hay, sugar, beets, grain and wool are other major industries. The state capital, Cheyenne, shares its name with the Native American tribe that populated the eastern plains in the 18th and 19th centuries. Wyoming was the first state in the Union to elect a female governor, Nellie Tayloe Ross; Ross was elected in 1924. Because of the rights given to women early on in the state, Wyoming has the nickname "The Equality State."
