Trivia Question 2. What was Steamboat Springs called originally?

Posted by Kim Filler


Steamboat Springs did not earn its name as we know it today until three French Trappers came to town citing the chugging sound from a downtown hot spring – believed to be in the 1860’s. Ute Indians and earlier Trappers referred to the area as River Bend or Bend in the River, relating to the contour of the Yampa River as it flows into town.
