In the early 1880's, James Landis homesteaded the confluence of the Roaring Fork and Grand rivers that would become Glenwood Springs. Early Settlers in Glenwood SpringsEarly settlers Isaac Cooper and Walter Devereux saw the potential for Glenwood Springs to become a highly regarded destination and developed these amenities into a world class resort. The arrival of the railroads in 1887 brought the first trainloads of tourists to enjoy all that Glenwood has to offer. The addition of the Vapor Caves, Hotel Colorado and Fairy Caves provided a total package for the well-heeled traveler.
