Settled by pioneering ranch families in 1883, Gypsum is located at the western edge of Eagle County. The town was named for the high concentration of Gypsum deposits in the area and was incorporated in 1911. Already the most populous municipality in Eagle Country, Gypsum is a growing and developing community with easy access to Vail and an abundance of healthy outdoor activities. Gypsum is working on a master plan that includes beautifying highways, creating a welcoming central downtown, and economic growth through community development.
