This photo-based history tells the story of a mountain valley originally settled in the 1880s by ranchers that has since evolved into a world-class ski resort. Includes stories of early-day pioneers and later-day celebrities.
Before Eagle County became known for its world-class ski resorts and high-end real estate, the county had a colorful history of nomadic Utes, adventurous mountain men, optimistic miners, and hard-working homesteaders. The Eagle County Historical Society works to preserve and share the county’s rich history. Knowing and understanding the people and forces that shaped the past makes us a better community today.
