Established in 1897, incorporated in January of 1899, and located in southwest Wyoming, Kemmerer has been a coal-mining community for over 100 years. Kemmerer became the county seat for Lincoln County in 1911 when Uinta County, one of Wyoming's original five counties, was divided. James Cash Penney opened the first J. C. Penney store in Kemmerer on April 12, 1902. During the 1920s, the Kemmerer area became a large center for moonshining and a large supplier of liquor for Chicago and the Midwest. This ended when Prohibition was repealed in 1933. The rich deposits of fossils in the area have long been a point of interest for paleontologists and geologists, amateur and professional, giving Kemmerer the title "Fossil Fish Capital of the World."

Lots of great pictures showing early Kemmerer. My mother grew up here and it was nice seeing the town was more settled than I'd previously thought.

I grew up in Kemmerer and know of it's amazing past. It's had such an amazing past, in fact, that it's almost hard to believe that a small town like that could have seen so much in its short lifetime. I found, though, that from reading the book, I barely knew anything at all. I wish I had the book then so I could learn more about it and see if I could find some of the buildings that were in the book. It did bring back a lot of memories of places I'd visited and seen when I lived there. I think the author did a great job of the storyline and also with having so many pictures in the book. Very detailed and nicely done!! It's very comprehensive with all that it covers in that size of book from the birth to almost current times. It covered things that happened when I lived there. It would be of interest to anyone not only from Kemmerer but anyone who is interested in how the west was won, really.
