Fairplay [1] is a town in the south central region of Colorado, in the Rocky Mountains of the United States of America.

History[edit]

The town was named by gold prospectors who settled it in 1859 when they were driven from nearby Tarryall by miners who had staked more claims than they could work. In "Fair Play" every man would have an equal chance to stake a claim. Visitors aware of the town's gold-mining roots will find it impossible to miss the remains of the industry that mark the surrounding country side. Anyone interested in the history of the old west and western mining should visit the South Park City Museum in Fairplay.
