No one had reason to disturb the San Juan Mountains until gold was discovered elsewhere and prospectors decided every mountain might have been touched by Midas. The first claim in 1875 was rich not only in gold, but also silver, lead, copper, zinc and iron. The town of Columbia was established in 1880 but, to avoid confusion with a CaUfornia town, a name change was necessary to gain a post office. Telluride probably is a derivation of teUurium, an element associated with gold deposits but not found here, or the name may be a contraction of "To heU you ride," a common fareweU to prospectors. Mining never recovered after silver crashed in 1893 and the gold price was fixed during WW1. The ski industry resurrected TeUuride in the 1970s and, with its annual film and bluegrass festivals, the old mining town acquired a cachet as a watering hole of the glitterati.
