Mineral County, Colorado is the 2nd least populated county in Colorado. With a population totaling 698 and a veteran population of 111, Mineral County exudes “small town life.” The county got its name from the many valuable minerals that can be found in its mountains and rivers. The minerals are the reason many settlers flocked to the county. Mineral County became officially established in 1892.
The City of Creede is the only town that you will find in Mineral County. Just because the county is small doesn’t mean you won’t find great shopping and restaurants. Creede also offers art galleries, historical theaters, and mines.
Mineral County is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. The untouched landscape provides a great environment for activities such as hiking, camping, and skiing. A diverse wildlife makes Mineral County an excellent spot for fishing and hunting.
The Creede Repertory Theater was founded in 1966 and is now where local acts put on various plays and programs. This award-winning theater is the best place to take in a local show with the entertainment quality of a large production. In fact, USA Today called the Creede Repertory Theater “one of the ten best places to see the lights way off Broadway.”
