Located roughly 40 miles east of Sheridan, the Town of Clearmont is said to be named for nearby Clear Creek and the view of the Bighorn Mountains. The town got its start as a cattle town in the 1890s and early 1900s, and today remains a primarily small farm and ranch community. Among its other attractions and outdoor recreation opportunities, Clearmont hosts three particular points of interest: the Clearmont Town Jail – an official item on the National Registry of Historic Places; the Old Rock School – one of only a handful of rock-built one-room schoolhouses left in Wyoming; and, the Ucross Foundation art gallery – which hosts an artists-in-residence program in addition to numerous art exhibits. Aside from the art gallery, nearby Ucross Ranch offers overnight stays, retreats, hunting, and a plethora of other outdoor activities.
