SUBLETTE COUNTY
|
District
09
Seat: Pinedale
Sublette County, the last county to be organized in Wyoming, was formed in 1921, from territory that had been in Fremont and Lincoln Counties. Named in honor of William Sublette, a mountain man and fur trader, Sublette County is comprised of the Upper Green River Valley. Since the end of the fur trapping era in the late 1800s, tourism, outdoor recreation, and natural gas production have become the county's economic mainstays. The County Seat and Courthouse are located in Pinedale.

The Ninth Judicial District was created in 1927 and assigned one district court judge, who presided over two counties: Fremont and Hot Springs. Presently, the district is comprised of three counties, covering approximately 18,125 square miles, and three district court judges. In addition, the Ninth Judicial District has a circuit court with four circuit court judges and municipal courts.

Interesting Fact

Three well-known archeological sites place indigenous peoples for thousands of years in what’s now Sublette County: The Wardell Buffalo Trap is the oldest known kill site where hunters used bows and arrows, and dates back approximately 1,000 years; the Trapper’s Point Antelope Kill Site has been radiocarbon-dated to 7,880 to 4,690 years ago; and archeologists excavating the J. David Love Site in the Jonah Field south of present Pinedale uncovered the oldest burial site in Wyoming, dating back 7,200 years. Archeological data suggests that people have lived in Sublette County for at least 9,000 years. Archeologists also believe all of the natives were seasonal, moving out during the winter and returning for the summer.
