Frisco, Co. was founded in 1873 (officially chartered in 1879) by Henry Recen, the town quickly developed thanks in part to the locale's many mines. By 1882 the permanent population reached 250 with two railroads, many businesses, hotels and saloons, not to mention "loads of mines." The mining boomed lasted until 1918. Along with the rest of the country, Frisco was hit by the Depression; by 1930 Frisco's permanent population had dropped to only 18 people. Frisco was one of the few old mining towns to keep going. Many of the smaller, less accessible mining towns were deserted. Frisco persevered and by 1946 the population had increased to 50. Frisco remained a sleepy town with a sprinkling of summer tourists until the ski industry - which now attracts some 3 million people a year to the area -- brought a new boom era to Summit County.
