Eagle County is named for the 60.5 mile long Eagle River that joins the Colorado River in western Eagle County. The county was created by the Colorado Legislature on Feb. 11, 1883. Made from portions of Summit County, Eagle boasts a surface area of 1,692 square miles. The Ground Hog Mine, located in a small town in Eagle County, once produced large amounts of gold and silver.
Eagle County is located in the visually-striking Rocky Mountains. This makes it the perfect place to take in mountain views and relax by flowing rivers and streams. The county is also the home of several hiking trails, including the Colorado Trail and the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail.
A large portion of the county is made up of the White River National Forest. There are several areas great for skiing and hiking in this forest. It is also the site of eight officially designated wilderness areas.
Eagle County has a current population of 52,921 people, with a veteran population of 1,763. The median household income is $74,456, and the median housing cost is around $453,300. The state of Colorado offers property tax exemption for disabled veterans. For those that qualify, 50 percent of the first $200,000 in the actual value of their primary residence will be exempt.
