Historical Note

Laramie County was created by Dakota Territory and was one of the four original counties when Wyoming Territory was organized in 1867. The county seat is Cheyenne.

The county clerk's office manages records relating to county government administration, real estate transactions, corporations, marriages, elections, road and bridge maintenance, and motor vehicle registrations. Prior to 1909, livestock brands were registered at the county level. Historically, counties were also responsible for the welfare of their citizens and often oversaw early efforts to financially assist the poor, mentally ill and elderly.
