First established in 1903, Worland is the county seat of Washakie County. The premier attraction in Worland is the Washakie Museum & Cultural Center, the finest interpretive center of local history. Home to the most restaurants and hotels in Washakie County, Worland also just opened the Worland Aquatic Center, the perfect place for the whole family to cool off or exercise during their trip. Golfers can hit the links at Worland’s Green Hills Golf Club, one of Northwest Wyoming’s most popular and well-manicured golf courses.
Local famers grow barley, corn, oats, sugar beets, and alfalfa among other specialty crops. Irrigation comes from the Big Horn River and Worland’s drinking water comes from am Artesian well located some 23 miles northeast of Worland on the western slope of the Big Horn Mountains.
