Map of the Johnson County
1875, the Wyoming Legislature detached the northern portion of
to create Pease County. Yet because there were not enough settlers,
Pease County was never organized. In late 1879, the legislature
created Johnson County (named for E. P. Johnson, a Cheyenne attorney)
out of the northern portion of the non-functional Pease County. After
300 signatures were gathered, Johnson County was formally recognized
in 1880. An organizational election was held April 19, 1881 and the
new county government formed on May 10 of that year – seated in
Buffalo. Initially, Johnson County included all of today’s
Johnson County, all of today’s Sheridan
the portions of today’s Big Horn and Washakie counties east of
the Big Horn River.
