Pagosa Springs takes its name from a Ute word for healing waters. In 1866, Col. Albert H. Pfeiffer, a U.S. Indian agent representing the Utes, won a duel fought with Bowie knives against a Navajo for possession of the springs. Fort Lewis was built here in 1878 to control the Utes and a town of sorts grew around it. When the Utes lost their territory, Fort Lewis was moved to Hesperus. The town found itself in the middle of a logging boom after the Denver & Rio Grande connected Antonito to the east with Durango to the west in 1881. Lots were auctioned at Pagosa Springs and Archuleta County was formed in 1885. Most residents were involved in ranching, logging or coal-mining. The town was incorporated in 1891. Pagosa Springs offers summer and winter recreational activities and nearby Wolf Creek Ski Area is famous for having the most snow in Colorado.
