History The town of Atlantic City is a small mining settlement in a gulch near South Pass in southwestern Wyoming. It was founded as a mining camp following the 1867 gold rush in the region. The town declined following the end of the Placer gold rush in the early 1870s, but continued to exist as advances in mining technology allowed further extraction of gold. From the 1960s until 1983, it was the location of the US Steel iron ore mine. The town is accessible by gravel roads from the nearby Wyoming Highway 28. Breathtaking scenic views can be enjoyed on Highway 28 from Lander to Atlantic City, including the famous Red Canyon scenic overlook turnout point.
