A Step Back in Time

The small community of Cherryville was an old gold mining camp founded in the 1860s by prospectors from the California Gold Rush. Between 1863 and 1895, the original town that is now known as Cherryville was a small mining camp located within the canyon walls of Cherry Creek. Its population was 100 people, half of whom were Chinese miners.

With more and more miners heading into the Cherry Creek area, a road was built from Lumby in 1877, through Blue Springs Valley, attracting new families to the area. The community was known by the post office name of Cherry Creek, then Hilton, which remained for many years. Cherry Creek and Cherryville were named after the wild Choke Cherries that grew along the banks of the creek.
