Wild Horse is a tiny eastern plains town near the Kansas border. There’s a former one-room school house and a gathering of homes.
The town isn’t much more than a post office, in use since 1904. The town zip is 80862.
Wild Horse Creek nearby gave the town its name. It was originally founded in 1869 as a barracks, later becoming a railway station. By the mid 1870s it was a complete town.
The heyday peaked in the early twentieth century and began shrinking thereafter. In 1917 there was a fire. While the town was rebuilt, it never reclaimed its status of a central service town and began to shrink again.
There is still a post office at Wild Horse, which has been in operation since 1904. and currently services Zip Code 80862.  There is also a one-room school house, no longer in use, and a cluster of older small homes.
