In 1881, William Rose established a homestead along Fortification Creek. The town was originally named after Rose, who also is honored by Rose Street and Rosedale, the first suburban area. WH. Tucker arrived in 1889, looking for a place to establish a town site, which he did with the financial assistance of Rev. Bayard Craig. In 1897, downtown Craig went up in flames when the town hall, decorated for a Valentine's Day dance, caught fire. The townspeople rebuilt with brick. Coal mining, wheat farming, cattle ranching and electricity production provide employment. The region is popular for hunting, hiking, whitewater rafting, and especially fishing. The Yampa River holds northern pike in the 20-lb. range, while the Roaring Fork and Frying Pan rivers feature superb trout fishing. Craig's Grand Olde West Days celebration features the Wild Game and Road Kill Cook-Off.
