Newspaper Fairplay Flume Bailey, CO

Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny don't really live here. The South Park cartoon series brought attention to this part of Park County, but the fictitious South Park was inspired by Conifer, the Jefferson County hometown of co-creator Trey Parker. The center of South Park County is Fairplay, which was setded in 1859 by gold prospectors who were forced out of nearby Tarryall by miners who had staked more claims than they could work. In their new town, the prospectors declared, every man would have an equal chance to stake a claim. Mining culture is preserved at South Park City, a remarkable museum with 34 restored buildings containing more than 60,000 artifacts. Fairplay has memorialized three of its notable residents. Prunes, a burro who worked the mines, is remembered with a large monument, while Shorty, a burro who lived on handouts, and his canine sidekick, Bum, are buried together under a headstone on the courthouse lawn.
