Overview


Evanston was founded in 1868 as a frontier camp for construction of the Union Pacific Railroad. By 1871, with the construction of a roundhouse and machine shops, the town’s permanency was assured and it soon became the shipping center for cattle for Wyoming, Utah and Montana. A large Chinese population lived in Evanston to work in the Almy Coal Mines and on the Union Pacific track. More recently, Evanston was the center of oil and gas activity along the Overthrust Belt during the mid-80’s.
