Hartville, WY

Hartville, Wyoming
With a population of 76 (2000 census) and a land area of under 0.28 of a mile, Hartville is the smallest town in Platte County, but don't let that fool you...this community has a "whole lotta Hart!" Hartville has the distinction of being the Oldest-Still-In-Existence-Incorporated-Town in Wyoming.

The town of Hartville was established in 1884, and named after Major Virling Hart, the owner of a local copper mine. Hartville was first settled in the 1870’s by prospectors and was a thriving city by the turn of the century. Many of the buildings built during this time are still standing today. The town is located at an elevation of 4,682 feet.

Hartville boasts an excellent Volunteer Fire Department. The Hartville-Sunrise Museum is open seasonally or by appointment. The Miner's Inn is the oldest bar in Wyoming, and you can still stop in there for an ice cold beverage or a visit with the locals.
