Sweetwater County Cities
- City of Rock Springs The spring the town was named for eventually dried up due to mining operations. However, Rock Springs owes its growth and development to the coal mining industry. It was coal mined from Rock Springs that the Union Pacific Railroad used to power their steam engines. During the summer and fall of 1868 hundreds of miles of rail were laid across Sweetwater County for the Union Pacific Railroad. Once completed, the railroad helped existing towns thrive, as well as establish new ones across the county.
- City of Green River Green River truly is an oasis in the arid high desert plateau. The "Green River", for which the town takes its name, winds through the heart of town. "Blue Ribbon" trout fishing can be found from the banks in town!
