Gold was discovered on Whiskey Flat in June, 1862; Canyon City quickly grew and became the County Seat by 1864. Scenes and Characters from the early years come alive in this 1996 mural by Larry Kangas.

This colorful history is celebrated at "62 Days" an event sponsored annually since 1922 by the Whiskey Gulch Gang. Come and celebrate "62 Days" the first full weekend in June!
