Gypsum is a small Colorado community with a rich history, a warm atmosphere and vast recreational opportunities. Settled by pioneering ranch families in 1883 and incorporated in 1911, the community’s agricultural roots are evident to this day.

With a robust business community offering a diverse array of local service and retail businesses, Gypsum operates as a major commercial hub serving the needs of the entire valley. The community takes a proactive stance towards economic development, and in 2014 issued $60,000 in grants to local businesses for capital improvements. Gypsum is home to Eagle County Regional Airport and its quick connections to cities all over the globe. The community also boasts some of the most competitively priced residential and commercial property available in the Vail Valley.

Gypsum offers its residents a high quality of life, and has been designated a Playful City USA for the past three years because of its 12 parks, 18-hole championship golf course, shooting range, fishing ponds, numerous points of access to BLM lands and its state of the art recreation center. The town also hosts seven major community events, the largest being the long-running Gypsum Daze festival, which draws over 10,000 attendees each year.

The Vail Valley and surrounding areas are an area of opportunity for small to medium sized businesses with a focus on serving not only our out of town guests, but also our local population as well. There are niches in our Valley that aren’t in other places, and that is where people can use their skills and love of our mountain environment to provide goods and services to visitors and locals.
