Early Days on the Eagle
by MacDonald Knight and Leonard Hammock
This is the most comprehensive published history of the Eagle Valley during its mining heyday. Covered topics include the mines, communities, transportation, and the people of the Eagle Valley. Written by two educators with a particular fascination for mining.
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.
