"Tative" Coloradans may resent newcomers, but certain areas X\| couldn't have prospered without immigrants and the products they introduced. Paonia was named by founder Samuel Wade after the peony roots he brought with him. Wade's son Ezra came to the North Fork Valley in 1881, and his glowing reports lured Samuel Wade and his friend Enos Hotchkiss, who founded the nearby town of Hotchkiss. In 1882, Wade imported the first fruit trees and ditches were dug to irrigate the budding orchards of grapes, apples, pears, peaches, plums, apricots and cherries. The West Elk Mine is the state's second-largest coal mine. Ranchers still raise cattle and sheep. Its location makes Paonia an outdoor recreation center, but it also has a vibrant arts community. The performing arts center houses a symphony, a youth orchestra and chamber groups. Local artists include potters, weavers and quilters, as well as sculptors attracted by the state's only two-story foundry.
