Walden history:

Walden was established in 1889 at the crossing of wagon roads from Laramie, Wyoming to Teller City, Colorado and Albany Wyoming to Granby, Grand County, Colorado. The founders thought this would be a good place to set up a trading center because of the Teller City mining and the many ranchers and homesteaders who were starting to move into the area.
It was at a place known as "Point of Rocks" but it was not a dignified so the name of Sagebrush was briefly considered but ended up being named for Marcus Aurelius Walden a one time postmaster at Sage Hen Springs. Walden was incorporated on 2 December 1890 and received its post office at that time.
The founding of Walden: 1889
The incorporation date of Walden: 2 December 1890
