Lost Springs, Wyoming: Population 1

Lost Springs, WY Population 1

In September 2007 Solomon and I made our way to Lost Springs, Wyoming. We made our way south on I-25 until we got to Exit 126, where we would then head east on US 18/20.  Along the way we came to the sprawling metropolis of Lost Springs, WY.  According to a Wikipedia article, Lost Springs is one of only five towns in the United States that are officially registered in the census to have only one (1) person. The others are Hibbert’s Gore, ME, Erving’s Location, NH, New Amsterdam, IN and Monowi, NE.  Apparently, in 2009 the population had increased to 4.

Welcome to Lost Springs

The photo above shows the sign one sees as they enter town.  What is not seen is on the other side of the tracks.  I would be amazed if only one person was keeping this up!!  We drove into the town and took a couple of other shots.  The church says there are three people in town, which I found attested to on this site.  Apparently Art Stringham and his brother run the Lost Springs store and Leda Price runs the Bar.  Leda is also the Mayor of the town.

Travelographer Extraordinaire. I Enjoy the Ride by traveling and seeing the world around me. We are so busy speeding down the freeways of life that we miss out on the back roads and all the wonderful little stories that every place offers. So, I try to take the less beaten paths and see the real world. I have visited all 50 United States and many provinces in Canada, nearly all prefectures in Japan as well as Seaul, Korea, Shanghai and Suzhou, China and Cenu, Philippines. Also been to Mexico. Father of five, grandfather of 10 and happily married to my sweetheart for nearly 38 years. Fluent in Japanese. Happy and well traveled. See details at http://www.sumoflam.biz/SumoflamBio.htm
