怀俄明这个字源自于阿尔冈京字,意即「拥有广大草原的土地」(land of vast plains)当联合太平洋铁路(Union Pacific Railroad)1867年抵达首府夏延镇(Cheyenne)后,怀俄明领地内的居住人口才开始稳定成长。成立于1868年的怀俄明在1890年添加联邦,成为美国第44州。「平等之州」(Equality State)的宪法是世上第一部赋予女性投票权的法律,另外,怀俄明也 是第一州选出女性的州长。怀俄明的居民散布在州内的各小农场或牧场小镇内,而每年都有数以百数的游客涌入黄石国家公园(Yellowstone)及大堤顿国家公园(Grand Teton)它的州花有一个充满诗意的名字:印地安人的彩花;怀俄明是联邦各州内人口最少的一州。

Wyoming gets its name from the Algonquin words for "land of vast plains." After the Union Pacific Railroad reached the town of Cheyenne, the capital, in 1867, the population began to grow steadily in the Wyoming Territory, established in 1868. Wyoming was admitted as the 44th state in 1890. The constitution of the "Equality State" was the first in the world to grant voting rights to women. Wyoming was also the first state to elect a woman governor. People are spread out across the state in small farming and ranching towns, and millions of visitors come to enjoy the Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks each year. The state flower has the poetic name of Indian paintbrush. Wyoming is the smallest state in the Union in population.
