Wrap your mind around this: The value of the gold mined in Teller County is greater than the combined value of all the gold ever produced everywhere else in the U.S. However, it was lumber rather than gold that made Woodland Park important. Founded in the early 1880s as Manitou Park, the town built along the tracks of the Colorado Midland Railroad was a resort favored by tuberculosis patients, who found the mountain community a pleasant place in which to convalesce. In 1890, gold was discovered at Cripple Creek. Woodland Park, incorporated in 1891, became the site of five sawmills constructed to meet the demands for lumber coming not only from the mines, but also from railroads and booming Colorado Springs. The mills annually produced millions of feet of lumber and shipped 200,000 railroad ties each year. The largest city in Teller County, Woodland Park is still a resort area surrounded by spruce, pine and aspen.
