Elizabeth (1859, 6,478 feet) began as a small hamlet after brothers named Weber started a sawmill. In 1881 John Evans named the town, by then a stop on his Denver & New Orleans Railroad, for his sister-in-law, Elizabeth Gray Kimbark Hubbard. Today Elizabeth is luring city dwellers from Denver forty miles away, including artists such as the watercolorist Buffalo Kaplinski, who converted an old Farm-house to his home and studio. Black Forest Potters have an adobe studio at the southwest corner of Main and Chestnut streets.
