The city began its prosperity with the setting up of the Rough and Ready Flour Mill. This was built in 1867 by Richard Little. Prior to his arrival, the area was traversed by miners and prospectors on their way to Pike's Peak during the gold rush circa the 1850s.
When Rich Little arrived he was aware of the potential of the area and was captivated by the natural beauty, characteristic of Colorado. Soon after Little and his family arrived and set up the mill, other merchants and traders set up their trades and began to form what was soon to be a prosperous area in close proximity to Denver and Pikes Peak. It became a place where prospectors could get supplies and lodging when traveling.
The area was dry, though cool, and for the city to really take hold, a series of ditches and waterways were dredged to advance the possibility of farming. This was the same reason Rich Little arrived in the area originally. He was here to help with the design and construction of waterways and ditches. Little was an engineer by profession. By 1900 the area residents voted overwhelmingly to incorporate a town and name it after the Littles.
Soon after incorporation, the Rich Little's property was platted and the land was converted to a village. From there on development of Rich Little's town was swift and the expansion continued with statehood of Colorado in 1876.
