The old LaGrange High School

Originally, the settlement at LaGrange was a site on one of the old cattle trails between Texas and Montana. For many years this was big cattle ranching country, then came the big freeze of 1887-8 when so many cattle in eastern Wyoming froze and starved to death. That helped to turn this entire area in a major sheep ranching zone.

Today, the place is just a few miles west of the Wyoming-South Dakota state line on Wyoming Highway 151.

Perhaps LaGrange's biggest claim to fame these days springs from the presence in town of the "Frontier School of the Bible," a 3-year non-denominational bible college offering training in discipleship, the ministry, Christian education and missionary work with about 225 students every year.
