There is some great history here in Wyoming, but it seems it's one of those states people don't know anything about and forget that it even exists.

Wyoming became the 44th State in 1890 and at the end of 2021 has a population of 578,803 Wyomingites. The state is known as the 'Equality State' because it was the first state to allow women to vote, serve on juries and hold public office.

It's pretty evident that Wyomingites aren't upset that many folks don't know much about the state, with comments like:

We're full

Stay away

Keep your California out of my Wyoming

It's fine, we don't need you here

The fact that some people haven't learned to pick up a map, looked at a globe, or even googled Wyoming, is mind-boggling. Last year was a record-breaking year in Wyoming's tourism industry. The largest amount of tourists ever visited Yellowstone National Park, with over 4,472,982 through September of 2021. With those kinds of numbers, you'd sure think that at least some of them would've researched or at least noticed some things.

We have been keeping track of some of the most "interesting" awful myths that folks from Wyoming have heard from others, when they were on vacation, at their out of state jobs, or living in a different state.
