Just two miles south of I-70, and only 10 minutes from Vail, Minturn was originally developed as railroad town in the late 1800s. Today, Minturn’s quaint galleries and antique shops offer a peek at the past while the town bustles with contemporary business activity and attractions.

The Town of Minturn was incorporated in 1904, making it one of the oldest towns in Eagle County. During Colorado’s mining boom, it was an essential crossroad for the mountain railroad system. Over the decades, Minturn has gradually transformed into a tourist-based economy. One of the most popular events in the community is the Minturn Farmer’s Market, which runs weekly during the summer. The Minturn Market annually hosts more than 5,000 visitors.
