History

The Ute people used the area for summer hunting before the town was settled. Trappers worked in the area in the early 1800s. [8]

The area was first settled in 1875, with the town established in 1894 and incorporated in 1906. [9] Hayden was named for F.V. Hayden, head of a survey party for the U.S. Geological & Geographic Survey in the late 1860s. [10] Hayden explored western Colorado during the late nineteenth century.

Historically a center of coal mining and agriculture, [11] it consists today of a small cluster of homes and businesses.
