History of Frisco, Colorado

The Ute Amerindians inhabited what is now Summit County, Colorado in 1810, when white trappers started entering the area in search of beaver fur. Mining began attracting more settlers in the 1870s, and the Town of Frisco was founded in 1873 by Henry Recen. Frisco grew quickly thanks to the many local mines, and received an official charter in 1879. By 1882, Frisco had a permanent population of 250.

The local mining industry began to ebb in 1918, and Frisco had only 18 residents by 1930 (the town was relatively lucky; many similar mining communities died out altogether). Frisco's population had rebounded somewhat by 1946 (to 50), but a real civic renaissance was ushered in by the ski industry, which attracts 3 million annual visitors to the region. Today Frisco has 2,800 permanent residents.
