Bonanza is situated in Colorado's spectacular San Luis Valley, an area blessed with rich mining history and great natural beauty. Originally named Bonanza City, the town was established in 1881 by prospectors hoping to mine a fortune in gold and silver from the surrounding hills. Today Bonanza is Colorado's smallest incorporated town with a handful of year-round residents and a population that can hit double-digits during the Summer months!
