A natural stopping place for those headed for the mines in South Park, Mt. Morrison, as it was known until 1950, also served tourists to the Red Rocks area and workers involved in quarrying the rich local deposits of building materials.  The town developed quickly as a bustling middle class community, and many of the original homes and commercial buildings remain intact.
