North Park History and Culture

The economy of North Park/Jackson County is presently based on ranching and agriculture, but mineral exploration, logging operations and outdoor recreation are mainstays as well.  The population of Jackson County has remained fairly stable throughout its history, only experiencing fluctuations as a result of mining booms.  North Park/Jackson County represents a disappearing culture basic to our American Heritage culture.  It is one of the few remaining agriculturally based mountain communities in the West.
