Mark A. Hanna, for whom this town was named, was a politician and financier who once sat on the board of directors for the Union Pacific Railroad. This name was not given to the town until 1886, and by that time, the Hanna town site had already existed as a stage station and a coal mining camp since much earlier in the century. In fact, the first coal town established in Wyoming, in 1868, (Carbon) is now a ghost town a few miles to the east. A graveyard and a few ruins are all that remain.

Hanna is still primarily a coal town, being situated between two of the states biggest working coal fields: the Medicine Bow strip mine to the west, and the huge Cyprus Shoshone mine to the north.
