History of Kremmling, Colorado

The town of Kremmling, Colorado was named after Rudolph Kremmling, a businessman who opened a trading post on the north side of Muddy Creek in 1884. Kremmling was a supply stop for pioneers traveling west, and many stopped to settle in the town permanently - the town had 140 residents by 1904. The Denver, Northwestern, and Pacific Railroads arrived in 1906, and the town's first fair (the Middle Park Fair) was held in 1912.

And things progressed from there. The Blue River, Colorado River, and Muddy Creek all pass through today's Kremmling, and the Routt, Arapaho, and White River National Forests lie nearby - the town is known as a gateway to many summer outdoor activities. But Kremmling's strengths lie in the realm of winter sports: the town hosts the annual Colorado Blue Ididarace dogsled race every February, and it's on the way from Denver to the ski town of Steamboat Springs. Grand County itself boasts over 300 miles of cross-country ski trails.
