The Kansas Pacific Railroad reached the Town of Cheyenne Wells on March 3, 1870. The Town had a population of 695 then. Cheyenne Wells was the division point of the Union Pacific Railroad from 1890 to 1908. The Town was incorporated on March 14, 1890. When it was incorporated it had an area of 520 acres.
