Most of the state is in the Central Time Zone — with the exception of the region along the western border.
Cheyenne County is in the top, northwest corner of the state. The four counties directly south of this county are in the Mountain Time Zone. These counties are, starting north: Sherman, Wallace, Greeley and Hamilton.
Here are examples of times folks “on the spot” need to be aware of the difference in Time Zones:
● When local high school teams compete in sports, with teams in a separate time zone, the Home Team depicts that time of the game!
● The annual three-day festival “Trails to Rails” in July, features events that commence in Logan county, that is in Central Time, and continue to Wallace County that is in Mountain Time. Events include a Stagecoach Ride crossing from one county to the next, plus scheduled suppers, luncheons, performances and presentations along the route.
The “Trails to Rails” schedule on the brochure and website lists each scheduled event with its Central Daylight Time and Mountain Daylight Time, “CDT / MDT.”
