Founded in 1887 as a stage stop, post office, and collection of functional conveniences for the ranchers of the area - when Steamboat was a long two hour stage ride away - the town of Sidney was born. Sidney saw many hard working families through prosperous times as well as lean. And, though the town has faded, some descendants of the original settlers still remain. They say the land is just as beautiful as it was when they were young. The character that has defined it for the last 125 years, since the first settler built the first home, remains in all its awesome rugged glory. Today Sidney Peak Ranch is committed to preserving the land's natural character so it will remain for another 125 years to be enjoyed by future generations.
