About Rawlins

Serving as the seat of Carbon County, Rawlins lies along the route that connects Cheyenne with Salt Lake City. It is named after the Union Army general John Aaron Rawlins and is notable as the source of a red pigment known as “Rawlins Red”. With its anti-rust properties, the pigment is believed to have been used to paint the Brooklyn Bridge.
