Powell was christened after Major John Wesley Powell a conservationist and an avid explorer though he never set foot on this city. It became a city in 1964 though it was incorporated as a town in 1909 and is nestled between the Big Horn Mountains and the Absaroka Range. Due to the Shoshone Irrigation Project, crops like barley, sugar beets, beans, alfalfa and corn grow aplenty in this temperate climate. Some of the interesting places to visit are the Homesteader Museum and Powell Aquatic Center.
