Basalt is a progressive community situated at the heart of the Roaring Fork Valley on Colorado’s Western Slope. Settled by European immigrants and incorporated in 1901, Basalt was the regional hub for the Colorado Midland Railroad, built to carry coal and silver ore between Aspen and Leadville. It was named for the black volcanic rock that forms Basalt Mountain just north of town. Historically a boom-bust economy rocked by an erratic mining industry, contemporary Basalt flourishes in a solid real estate market and strong business environment.
