Guernsey, population 1,184, sits in the middle of one of the most historic areas in Wyoming. Hundreds of thousands of immigrants passed through here on their way west in the middle of the 19th century, even stopping to carve their names in sandstone cliffs, washing their clothes in nearby springs, camping along the North Platte River, and sometimes burying their dead. Today Guernsey is a vibrant community, with Camp Guernsey, Wyoming’s Army Reserve National Guard facility and training center, and the Burlington Northern & Santa Fe railroad yards just east of town. In the summer, thousands of vacationers converge on Lake Guernsey, just four miles north, to boat, camp, and fish.
