The area that is now El Dorado was first settled in 1855 by the famous explorer Kit Carson. The settlers of this area were looking for a place to find new opportunities and they were able to find them in the little town that they found. When they first came to this region they were mainly interested in hunting and exploring the land. When settlers moved into these regions, they did not move right into the town that was located here at all. Instead, the settlers went out in groups and looked for the best land to set up their homes and farms. At this time this area was not primarily settled but there were a few farmers that did come here to try their luck. This meant that there were very few people living here when El Dorado was first started.
