关于怀俄明州的石泉

Named for a former spring that babbled through town, 岩石弹簧 sprung from the growth and development of the area’s coal mining industry. In 1868, the coal mined here powered the steam engines of the Union Pacific Railroad, which laid hundreds of miles of track, 让周边城镇繁荣发展. The booming railroad and mining work left behind a culturally rich community that’s represented by dozens of nationalities.

The railroad’s conversion to diesel and oil power in the mid-1900s drove out many of the city’s coal mines. 但是今天, 岩石弹簧 thrives with trona mines and the oil and gas industry, keeping the city vibrant and making it a local hub for dining, 购物, 和景点.
