History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The first Euro-American settlement occurred in the Casper area in the late 19th century. Natrona County was created by the legislature of the Wyoming Territory on March 9, 1888. The land for Natrona County was ceded from Carbon County.

Natrona County was named for the deposits of natron that are found in the area. In 1909, Natrona County gained land from Fremont County. The boundaries were adjusted slightly in 1911 and 1931, and at that point the county gained its present outline.
