Historic Fountain lays nestled near the confluence of Fountain Creek and Jimmy Camp Creek. Ute Indians, French fur trappers, covered wagons, and stagecoaches all passed through this fertile valley along the Cherokee Trail until Amos Terrell settled here in the early 1860s, followed by farmers and ranchers. Businessmen soon began to buy town lots as Terrell sold off portions of his land. The railroad eventually pushed its way through town from Denver to Pueblo, while new arrivals of Mexican ancestry came up from the south with their strong work ethic and zesty Southwestern culture. Camp Carson became Fountain's neighbor to the west in 1942, and since then, the small town has seen steady growth as it remains an important hub in the Fountain Valley. Fountain was honored to be named "Millennium City" in 2000, as it represents the diverse character of the entire country.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Angela Thaden HahnPublisher: Arcadia Publishing Library EditionsPublished: 08/06/2012ISBN: 9781531664176Pages: 130Weight: 0.91lbsSize: 9.61h x 6.69w x 0.38d
