1864 - 1964"Eureka!" a miner is said to have exclaimed in September, 1864, when the discovery of rich ore was made here—and thus the town was named. Eureka soon developed the first important lead-silver deposits in the nation and during the furious boom of the 80's had 16 smelters, over 100 saloons, a population of 10,000 and a railroad, the colorful Eureka and Palisade that connected with the main line 90 miles to the north.
