Tourist-ing in the
Kemmerer/Diamondville, Wyoming Area

Kemmerer was founded in 1897, due to it’s proximity to a rich coal deposit, which was mined by the Union Pacific Coal Company. The coal mine still operates as a subsidiary of the Chevron Company, with an annual output of approximately 5 million tons of coal. Many trains carry the coal out to different parts of the country.
