Historic Jay Em on the Rawhide is a small town situated in western Wyoming, about 30 miles south of Evanston. The town was founded in the late 1800s as a stopover for cattle drives traveling through the area. The name "Jay Em" is derived from the initials of the town's founder, John Mingus.

The town's main attraction is the historic Jay Em Hotel, which was built in 1910 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The hotel has been restored to its original grandeur and features nine guest rooms, a restaurant, and a bar. The hotel's decor reflects the town's western heritage, with cowboy hats, boots, and spurs adorning the walls.

In addition to the hotel, Jay Em on the Rawhide is home to a post office, a general store, and a few other small businesses. The town also hosts an annual rodeo, which draws visitors from all over the region.

Despite its small size, Jay Em on the Rawhide has played an important role in the history of Wyoming. It was a hub of activity during the cattle drives of the late 1800s and early 1900s, and it continues to be a popular destination for travelers looking to experience the state's western heritage.
