Como History

Following the developing mining boom of the late 19th century, the town of Como was established 1879 around a railway depot and later a junction point connecting to areas north and south.

By 1910, Como was the largest town in the county, but when the mining boom faded, and the trains stopped in 1937, the area population began to decline. Now the town of Como itself is home to some historic buildings, a small but lively commercial sector, and the many residents of mountain homes who occupy the surrounding hills.

Como was named after a town in Italy, due to the many Italians working in the local mining industry who settled there.
