History & History Related Items

The Ute Indians used the area for many thousands of years, but it wasn't until 1872, when a wagon route was blasted through the rocks from Colorado springs, that settlers began to come to the area in earnest. By 1887, the Midland Railway had come which further developed the area. The town was incorporated on 1 December 1890.

Due to its natural beauty, Woodland park quickly became a resort town, but also due to the plentiful forests it became a business center for the area with lumber being the primary business. Many logs were used by the railroads and underground gold mines in Cripple Creek and Victor.

Woodland Park was named for the beautiful wooded hills and valleys on all sides of the town.
