Granby, Colorado, founded in 1905, had its origins as a logging and railroad community (the town was founded upon the arrival of the original Moffat Railroad). Granby was named after Granby Hiller, a US District Attorney for Colorado. By 1906, the town consisted of 30 homes, four saloons, two livery barns, two hotels, two restaurants, a single church, and a single schoolhouse.
Granby remained a "sleepy mountain town" known as the cow town down the valley from Winter Park until the opening years of the 21st
century, at which time Granby experienced unprecdented growth thanks to an influx of vacationers.
