懷俄明這個字源自於阿爾岡京字,意即「擁有廣大草原的土地」(land of vast plains)當聯合太平洋鐵路(Union Pacific Railroad)1867年抵達首府夏延鎮(Cheyenne)後,懷俄明領地內的居住人口才開始穩定成長。成立於1868年的懷俄明在1890年加入聯邦,成為美國第44州。「平等之州」(Equality State)的憲法是世上第一部賦予女性投票權的法律,另外,懷俄明也 是第一州選出女性的州長。懷俄明的居民散佈在州內的各小農場或牧場小鎮內,而每年都有數以百數的遊客湧入黃石國家公園(Yellowstone)及大堤頓國家公園(Grand Teton)它的州花有一個充滿詩意的名字:印地安人的彩花;懷俄明是聯邦各州內人口最少的一州。

Wyoming gets its name from the Algonquin words for "land of vast plains." After the Union Pacific Railroad reached the town of Cheyenne, the capital, in 1867, the population began to grow steadily in the Wyoming Territory, established in 1868. Wyoming was admitted as the 44th state in 1890. The constitution of the "Equality State" was the first in the world to grant voting rights to women. Wyoming was also the first state to elect a woman governor. People are spread out across the state in small farming and ranching towns, and millions of visitors come to enjoy the Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks each year. The state flower has the poetic name of Indian paintbrush. Wyoming is the smallest state in the Union in population.
