Some Rollinsville History
Rollinsville was named after John Rollins, a prominent mining executive living in Gilpin County in the 1860s and 70s, who actually banned gambling halls, dance halls, and saloons! Can you imagine! But, by the 1920s, there were three saloons, a pool hall, a blacksmith shop, and a dance hall! Most of the buildings burned in the fire of 1950, but the Stage Stop escaped.
Rollinsville Independence Day happens every summer on a Saturday, which this year happens to fall on Aug. 3!
