Est. 1887The Town of Hartville was named for Col. Verling Hart stationed at old Ft. Laramie in the late 1870's when Wyoming was still a territory.

The town originally located in Laramie County became part of Platte County in 1911. Hartville has the distinction of being the "oldest small town" still inhabited in Wyoming.
