Nederland Description

Nederland began its history as the site of the mill for silver ore from the rich silver mines at Caribou (now a ghost town five miles away) and, during World War I, for tungsten ore from surrounding mines. Today it is better known as a gateway to outdoor recreation in the nearby Indian Peaks and the new James Peak Wilderness Areas. Nederland is located 15 miles west of Boulder.
