CREEDE, ColoradO – The Place you call Home
Established in 1892 – You may be a lucky resident of this spectacular town that has family ties with many generations living here. Your great and great-great grandfathers mined the mountains your eyes see each day, making their homes with what they could amongst their fellow pioneers who came to the west looking for a better life. Perhaps you may have felt a pull towards the expansive Rocky Mountains and brought yourself to the place where you can feel the bustling history of ‘the town that never sleeps’ in the air. You and your family came here looking for prosperity and Freedom. You are proud to call Creede your Home. It is the place where your heart is happy.
The name Creede comes from Nicholas C. Creede. In 1889 he discovered a vein rich with silver, and his finding caused almost an overnight boom in this new town. Thousands rushed to Creede in hopes of unearthing their own riches. The quiet valley was turned into a lively metropolis with saloons, merchants, boarding houses and gambling houses that had popped up in every open space downtown. Cy Warman, a local journalist wrote in a poem “It’s day all day in the daytime, and there is no night in Creede”, of the fires that burned in the streets all night to light the never-ceasing construction of the ever-increasing city.
Along with the prospectors and miners, hoping to strike riches in silver or gold, came gamblers, conmen, and ladies of the night. A well-known name you may have heard before, Soapy Smith, brought his tricks to the ever-growing Creede. He earned the name Soapy because his infamous “Prize Package Soap Sell” where he would have a friend pretend to be an unknowing customer who would open his soap bar to reveal a $100 dollar bill. Customers would swarm to the booth to buy these bars of soap for one to five dollars, only to find either a nickel with their soap, or just the soap by its lonesome.
The Denver and Rio Grande Railroad started to bring tourists into the area as early as 1883 when the Wagon Wheel Gap Depot opened. People came to restore their health in the luxurious ancient hot springs, to fish in the Rio Grande River, and to admire the sights of lush wildlife in the glorious mountains. Within the next decade, the railroad was extended into Willow Creek Canyon and from that point two trains arrived and departed from Creede daily.
