Brief History of Eldora

The Arapaho were the early settlers of Eldora and the Ute people who used to hunt in that area during the summer season. Eldora was built for mining. In the early 1850, some prospectors were nosing around Eldora, not until 1875, when gold was discovered enough to open a mine in Eldora. The primary reason for establishing Eldora town in the 1880s was to gain access to more land for mining and an easy route into Middle Park and Western Colorado.

In 1890, Eldora blossomed in prosperity, and by late 1890, Eldora had about 1300-1500 inhabitants. In 1898, Eldora already had a school, seven grocery stores, a bank, nine hair salons, and a post office. Even though it has a working mining life, Eldora became a supply centre to other camps beyond and a railroad shipping centre for the camps that are close by.

Regardless of the massive mining of gold, silver, and tungsten in Eldora, the economic prosperity was for a short time. At the turn of the century, the economy reached its pinnacle. But t in 1899, Eldora experienced a devastating wildfire that affected a lot of things. There was a loss of timber, and a short supply of lumber was an essential element in the mining construction. 

Fortunately, the 21st century has expressed a renewal of interest in Eldora mining, with the expectations of reopening the Mogul Tunnel Mine located on the Spencer Mountain.
