Prior to the 1870s, few communities existed along the front range. Those bound for Boulder detrained at the Erie Railroad Terminal and boarded a stagecoach for their final destination. The original plat for Erie was filed in 1871 following the establishment of the Briggs Mine, the first commercial coal mine in Weld County. Until that time surface coal had been delivered to its customers by horse and wagon. From 1866 until 1979 Erie was one of the largest coal-producing towns in the nation.
