Glenwood Springs history:

Though populated by Ute Indian tribes for many years, the first settler to the area was James Landis in the early 1880's. Isaac Cooper and Walter Devereaux were the two men who developed the resort. Once the railroad came in 1887, more tourists began to arrive. The famous Hot Springs pool opened on 4 July 1888 and the bathhouse in 1890. Other attractions, resorts and businesses gradually opened resulting in a community with many places to visit and experience. President Teddy Roosevelt spent a summer here in the Hotel Colorado. Infamous Doc Holliday, of the Tombstone OK Corral gunfight, died here and is buried in the original cemetery.
