Formed in 1841, rural Wyoming County lies in the southwest corner of the Finger Lakes Region. Wyoming is home to a large portion of the picturesque Letchworth State Park, as well as the Attica State Prison. The county has had one of the greatest declines in population since 2000, and its tourism website boasts of being home to “more cows than people.” Wyoming’s unemployment rate is a bit higher than the state, nation, and region as a whole. However, crime rates have fallen sharply since 2000, and the county’s graduation rate is among the highest in the region.
