History

 

 

 

The area was first explored in 1853 by Captain John W. Gunnison of the United States Army. Gunnison was on an expedition to locate a suitable pass through the Rocky Mountains for the Topographical Engineers.

The North Fork Valley was inhabited by Ute Indians until 1880, when the Ute Indian Reservation was closed by the federal government following the infamous Meeker Massacre.

Following the closure of the reservation, the site itself was settled in 1880 by Samuel Wade and William Clark, who had accompanied Enos Hotchkiss to the area. The town was officially incorporated in 1902 and had its first election in July of that year. The peony roots that Samuel Wade brought with him to Colorado in 1881 inspired him to submit the Latin name for peony, "Paeonia" as a town name. The post office wouldn't allow the extra vowel, so Paeonia became Paonia. The full name of the flower is Paeonia mascula.

 

 

 

Industry

 

 

Coal mining

 

 

A substantial portion of Paonia's residents are employed in one of several coal mines located near Somerset a few miles from the town. The valley's principal coal mines are Oxbow Mining's Elk creek mine, Arch Coal's West Elk Mine, and a mine run by Bowie Resources.[8] Bucyrus International, a supplier of underground coal mining equipment, operates a small warehouse in Paonia for support of the underground longwall systems that are operating in the North Fork valley. Union Pacific provides service to the Bowie #2 Mine, loading-up 100 car trains in two hours.

 

 

 

 

Fruit growing

 

 

The area around Paonia is known for its orchards which produce peaches, apples, cherries, pears and plums. In addition, several vineyards and wineries have been established in the area.

 

 

 

Media

 

 

The noted Western newspaper, High Country News, is based in Paonia. High Country News reports on the Western US, and is focused on the environment, land use, and public lands issues.

Community radio station KVNF was founded in Paonia and continues to have studios in downtown Paonia. KVNF also now serves a number of towns in the North Fork and Uncompagre Valleys in Western Colorado through a network of stations and translators.

Paonia does not have a local newspaper. It is served by The North Fork Times, formerly an independent paper and now a section in the Delta County Independent. The area is also served by the monthly North Fork Merchant Herald, published in nearby Hotchkiss. The weekly Mountain Valley News was published in Cedaredge and distributed widely throughout Delta County, but closed its doors in September, 2013. Their sister publication, The High Country Shopper is published in Paonia.



 

Festivities

 

 

Paonia Cherry Days Festival

 

 

Paonia celebrates its "Cherry Days" festival annually on the week of July 4. It features parades, family and class reunions, a carnival, games, arts and crafts and musical performances.

There are over 20 musical acts, poetry, an art show, a chili cook off, a street dance, crafts, wine tasting, as well as classes on canning, raising livestock and sustainable living.

 

 

 

BMW rally

 

 

Paonia usually hosts an annual rally for BMW motorcycle enthusiasts, who descend upon the town in mid-summer and stay for several days.

 

 

 

Dreamtime Festival

 

The annual Dreamtime Festival has been hosted annually just outside of Paonia since 2002. Dreamtime combines live performances and music with educational workshops, theme camps and art installations. This fusion includes dancing, interactive sculptures, costumes, fire performances, theater, multimedia, creative fashion shows, DJs, a myriad of workshops, movement classes, healing camps, acoustic stages, and the inspired contributions of participants.

 

 

 

Rainbow Gathering

 

 

In 1992 the annual Rainbow Gathering was held at nearby Overland Reservoir. An estimated 18,275 people converged on the site and lived in temporary dwellings for the summer. Although the reservoir is 27 miles from Paonia, it had a significant impact on all the towns in the North Fork Valley, including Paonia. Many "New Agers" and members of the psychedelic community continue to reside in and around Paonia, which was the boyhood home of one of the voices and key figures of "ecstatic state" knowledge, Terence McKenna.

 

 

 

Paonia Film Festival

 

 

 

The Paradise Theatre in downtown Paonia hosts an annual film festival. The Paonia Film festival is meant to celebrate local and regional filmmakers and to highlight the beauty of the Western Colorado landscape and the rich stories of the people who live there.
