With the goldfields of the Rocky Mountains drawing eager argonauts, settlements sprang up where the approaching stagecoach stopped—places where folks could take their ease and freshen up from the journey while trading news of the latest strikes. Parker would begin in this simple way, becoming what’s today one of the fast-growing communities in the metro area. Despite the burgeoning growth, the city of Parker maintains its history assiduously. Grab your car for a caravan tour and join our colleagues in Parker for a chance to learn the city’s history and something of its modern development. Spanning more than a century, Parker’s got some gold for you! Includes guides and admissions. Provide your own transportation to starting point.
