Superior

Superior's history is one of coal mining. The first mines in the area were developed in the late 1800's. The Town itself was founded in 1896 and incorporated in 1904. The Town reportedly was named after the "superior" quality of coal found in the area.

Mining was the major force in Superior's history until the Industrial Mine closed in 1945. Subsequently, many people moved out of the area and the Town evolved into a quiet ranching and farming community. The Town's population hovered around 250 until recently. For a good review of Superior's history, look at Superior: A Folk History By Cynda Collins Arsenault. Copies of the book are available at Town Hall.

The new development is known as Rock Creek Ranch. Although the land was subdivided in 1987, development continues today. Through 2000, approximately 1900 single-family homes and 1600 multi-family homes have been developed in Rock Creek swelling Superior's population to approximately 9,000. There is now a second development west of the original town, called the Sagamore subdivision. Through 2000 approximately 171 homes have been developed.

Future development plans of the Town include commercial development, retail development, multi-family residential units, single family homes and a second school Eldorado K-8 is currently under construction. The Town is approximately seven square miles in area has 170 acres of park and open space and 6.7 miles of trails.
