Synopsis: On May 25, 2009, residents of Powell, Wyoming, celebrated the centennial of their town's founding. Within 100 years, many changes occurred in this community. Homesteaders irrigated the arid lands surrounding Powell, transforming the barren landscape into fertile farmlands. The town itself evolved from a US Reclamation Service labor camp, containing a handful of small dwellings and stores, into a more substantial community. Today, residents honor Powell's traditions and history, which continue to shape the town's civic pride and future development.

About the Author: Jeremy M. Johnston was born and raised in Powell, where he graduated from Powell High School in 1989. He attended the University of Wyoming where he received his B.A. in 1993 and his M.A. in 1995. He began teaching at Northwest College in 1994. His writings have been published in Annals of Wyoming, Points West, and Yellowstone Science. He is the recipient of the 2006 Coke Wood Award. He has appeared in the local PBS documentaries Roy Barnes: Rocky Mountain Cowboy and Wyoming Voices. He enjoys spending time with his wife, Amanda; his two sons, Jaxon and Samuel; and his daughter, Alexa. This illustrated history contains numerous photographs from the Park County Archives, the Homesteader Museum, Shoshone Irrigation District, and private collections.
