Oak Creek and the surrounding area's legacy is directly linked to the area's coal fields and the Denver & Salt Lake Railroad. Small mines historically supplied coal to the region but major production was not possible, nor profitable, without year-round transportation. In the early 1900S, rail was laid from Denver across the Continental Divide to towns along the Yampa River Valley.
In 1916, 1,400 men broke rock in the coal mines and from the 1920S through the 1940S Oak Creek was the largest town in Routt County.
Immigrants from around the world worked the coal mines surrounding Oak Creek from the early 1900S. The number of different ethnic groups was unusually high for its population during the 1920S to the 1940S. Today, the town embraces its diversity and heritage.
The Oak Creek and Phippsburg Historical Society keeps the region's heritage alive with the Tracks & Trails Museum. Coal mining memorabilia is featured at Bucket Park on Main Street in Oak Creek and the indoor museum exhibits tell the stories of miners, railroaders, and founding families.
