The historic town of Crested Butte started off as a coal and silver mining town in the late 1800s. Eventually the mines closed and the town shrank in size and did not begin to grow again until the ski area was started up in 1961. The town of Crested Butte is now a vibrant winter and summer destination with many tourists coming from Texas, Oklahoma and the front range of Colorado. Crested Butte has 1,500 year round residences and has been able to keep its small town charm and mining heritage alive. Crested Butte’s adorable downtown area is home to many restaurants, coffee shops, retail shops, art galleries and many professional offices. Crested Butte is also home to the Crested Butte Community School which was ranked as the sixth best public school in the entire state of Colorado.
Crested Butte has an eclectic mix of homes drawing inspiration from the mountains and its past mining heritage. The town of Crested Butte has become a highly desirable place to live in Gunnison County because of its close proximity to Alpine skiing at Crested Butte Mountain Resort and Nordic skiing at the Crested Butte Nordic Center, hundreds of miles of singletrack trails, shops and restaurants, and the K-12 Crested Butte Community School. This keeps property and land values high.
