Historical Facts
First named South Arkansas by the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad, who established the town in 1880, it was quickly changed to Salida the next year after a former Territorial Governor Alexander Hunt, D and RG’s real estate officer, returned from a trip to Mexico. His wife thought the name appropriate for the way the site opened out from the canyon into the appealing Arkansas River Valley, as salida in Spanish means exit, although it lost its Spanish pronunciation along the way. While the railroad no longer operates, it still owns the track and right-of-way.
 
Before it was a railroad town, the area was first inhabited by the Ute Indians, then trappers and later miners filtered through. At this time, homesteaders created roots in the current Poncha Springs and Nathrop areas.
