Welcome to Collins ...
Although we found mention of Collins during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Collins was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Collins was located in Laramie County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Collins to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Collins - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Collins, please Contact Us.
