There’s More to Love
Powell is surrounded by picturesque landscapes, with the Absaroka and Bighorn Mountains to the west and the cool, blue water of Shoshone River running through the town. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy hiking, fishing, hunting, and other recreational activities.
The city is also a gateway to the iconic Yellowstone National Park, which is 75 miles away. It’s the world’s first national park, established by the United States Congress in 1872. Yellowstone is home to more than 10,000 hydrothermal features, including geysers, hot springs, mud pots, and fumaroles (vents emitting hot volcanic gases and vapors).
Powell has a close-knit community where people often know their neighbors and participate in local events, such as rodeos, fairs, parades, and festivals. The population is relatively small, so there is a strong sense of family and unity, and it is a town with a rural charm that stems from a strong agricultural presence of farming and ranching.
A Diverse Economy
The city of Powell started as a cattle ranching community, and oil reserves were later found, prompting the construction of a rail line into the town. Then came mineral extraction and agriculture.
Today, the city has a diverse economy based on commercial, industrial, agriculture/ranching, and tourism. Dedicated, hard-working people with a can-do spirit are the backbone of Powell
