Riverton is a city in Fremont County, Wyoming, United States. The city's population was 10,615 at the 2010 census, making it the largest city in the county overall.HistoryThe city is an incorporated entity of the state of Wyoming. The community was named Riverton because of the four rivers that meet there. The town was built on land ceded from the Wind River Reservation in 1906, a situation that often makes it subject to jurisdictional claims by the nearby Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho tribes. Recent legal rulings indicate the land may have been sold but not ceded...(BIA Solicitor Opinion, October, 2011)In 2017, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the decision of the EPA, and held that the land had been ceded in 1905 by an Act of Congress.Demographics2010 censusAs of the census of 2010, there were 10,615 people, 4,252 households, and 2,600 families residing in the city.
