Pine Bluffs is a town in eastern Laramie County, Wyoming, United States. It is located on the county's border with Nebraska. It is part of the Cheyenne, Wyoming, Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 1,129 at the 2010 census. It was first known as Rock Ranch, but the name was changed by railroad officials for the pines on the nearby bluffs.HistoryIn 1868 Pine Bluffs consisted of a tent, a slab shack with a stone chimney, and a square shed of canvas-covered poles. Cattle herds moved up the Texas Trail which ran through Pine Bluffs and became the largest cattle shipping point on the Union Pacific Railroad around 1884. A few years later, in 1898, C.W. Johnson opened up one of Pine Bluffs' oldest stores. It was a proven success from the beginning, and remained opened until the latter half of the 20th century. By the early 1900s Pine Bluffs was known as the best lighted city of it size in the entire United States. The Pine Bluffs Lighting Company was organized in September 1909. This company used gas produced by a new process, giving the light more brilliance.Along with a growing town economy, agricultural endeavors were also booming around Pine Bluffs. In 1909 the local farmers got a chance to show off their hard work and dedication to the land. A unique but successful fair called the "Harvest Festival" was put on to showcase the vegetable and dry-farming section variety in the town. The main feature of the fair was the Grain Palace. Built entirely of different grain crops, this magnificent building covered 24by and to the eaves. The Grain Palace was filled with exhibits of area artwork made from home-grown products.
