Welcome to Kemmerer Diamondville

Chamber of Commerce

Kemmerer has a rich and nationally significant history. Established in 1897 and incorporated in January of 1899, Kemmerer is a community with a mining tradition that is emblematic of the development of the industry in the American West. The Kemmerer mine, Westmoreland Kemmerer, Inc., is located six miles south of town. Kemmerer is the seat of Lincoln County, located in a region of the country very near the Oregon Trail, California Trail, and Pony Express routes. James Cash "JC" Penney founded his chain upon moving to Kemmerer in 1902 as a dry goods store for the booming mining town. The original J.C. Penney store is still a thriving retail outlet known as the "Mother Store."



The rich deposits of fossils in the area have long been a point of interest for paleontologists and geologists, both amateur and professional. People come from all over the world to visit and explore the area.


The town has grown and prospered through boom and bust. Its main industry is mineral-based; coal, gas, sulfur, helium, etc... Kemmerer's past is an important element as it plans for its future.
