Superior, Co. has a history in coal mining. The first mines in the area were developed in the late 1800s. The Town itself was founded in 1896 and incorporated in 1904. The town was reportedly named for the "superior quality" of coal found in the area.

Mining was the major force in Superior's history until the Industrial Mine closed in 1945. Subsequently, many people moved out of the area and the Town evolved into a quiet ranching and farming community. The Town's population hovered around 250 until recently.

Town Known For: Two community parks make for interesting stops in Superior. Purple Park at the entrance to Rock Creek subdivision features big trees, a stream, and a large playground. At Grasso Park behind Superior Town Hall, visitors can explore the town's past at the original jail and a homestead house. Superior is also bordered on one side by Boulder County Open Space, which offers links to an extensive network of trails.
