Thousands of prospectors arrived in South Park due to the discovery of gold in 1859. The area became territorial and latecomers who were unwelcome were forced to push further west. A new mining town called “Fair Play” was then created. This town quickly prospered and became the county seat in 1867. Today, Fairplay is a vibrant mountain community that continues to grow and flourish.
