With a population of over 500, Allenspark is located in Boulder County. Currently an unincorporated town, the area was first settled in 1859, just as the Colorado Gold Rush was getting underway. The name for the area comes from Alonzo Nelson Allen, who built the first cabin in what would originally be known as Allen’s Park. Along with prospecting, Allen also ran cattle. He lived in the area until his death in 1894.
Much of the original village is situated on what was once the George Mack homestead. It’s also the location of Crystal Springs, considered one of the purest water sources in the area. Mack sold a portion of his land to the Allens Park Land and Townsite Company in 1896. The company began the planning for what would eventually be called Allenspark.
A resurgence in the possibility of gold in the area led to more people settling in the area. While the gold rush fizzled quickly, tourism became a major part of the local economy. In fact, many of the area’s ranchers and farmers found tourism to be lucrative pursuits, especially during the summer months.
The village remains a popular summer destination, with some summer residents joining more permanent ones during those months. A number of businesses in the area open during the summer only.
