Nederland, Co. began its history as the site of the mill for silver ore from the rich silver mines at Caribou (now a ghost town five miles away) and, during World War I, for tungsten ore from surrounding mines. Nederland was named by a Dutch mining company that purchased several mines in the area, The word Nederland comes from Dutch "The Netherlands" meaning low lands. It was named this because the large boom town at the time was Caribou, a town above Nederland, and Nederland was the lower lands that many traveled down to for supplies. Today it is better known as a gateway to outdoor recreation in the nearby Indian Peaks and the James Peak Wilderness Areas.
