Incorporation of Sheridan, Co. began on January 14, 1890 when a petition was filed, signed by thirty three citizens of the area. There was an objection to the "petition" because of some of the people named on the petition. A new petition resulted in a list of voters being made February 18th 1890. Many important names of the area were included. Of a total of 69 electors 66 voted for incorporation and two (2) against. The results were filed in the office of Secretary of State in April 1890 and admitted to record. The City draws it's name from military history. The City is located next to a former military post. The site for Fort Logan was selected March 30, 1887 by then General of the Army, Philip H. Sheridan. Originally, it was called the Camp near Denver. General Sheridan requested that a fort near Chicago be named after him on June 1, 1888. The name of the fort near Chicago was Fort Logan. The names were officially changed April 5, 1889 one half year after the death of General Sheridan.
