Norwood, Co. and the lands around it were first used as Ute hunting grounds. Later Spanish explorers and mountain men covered the territory, but no one settled in Norwood until 1879 when Edwin Joseph first homesteaded in the area. Ranching and mining took hold, and Norwood became an important supply town. Today, Norwood is a hub for cattle ranchers and outdoor enthusiasts. While change has come to Norwood, like any other town in Colorado, this remote southwestern town has done a stand-up job of protecting its Old West charm.
Nearby Miramonte Reservoir is a popular spot to windsurf, swim, sail and fish, while the lively town of Telluride is just 33 miles east of Norwood. Surrounding national forests and rivers also make Norwood a superior destination for hunting and fishing.
