Neighborhood Profiles

Lincoln Avenue

The first is the iconic image of Downtown Steamboat that is called Lincoln Avenue. This is what we think of when we say Main Street Steamboat. The image of the Soda Fountain at Lyon Drug store or “Lightning” the horse outside of FM Light and Sons is what comes to mind. Surrounded by “our mountains”, at the east end the view is of the Steamboat Ski Area and at the west end our Sleeping Giant. Lincoln is the original center of commerce for our city and still is today. More…

Oak Street

Oak Street is the home of many of our professional services in Steamboat Springs as well as being the center of our Spiritual life and has been for over a century. In 1910 there were several professionals who lived and worked on Oak Street. More…

Yampa Street

Located along the Yampa River, our Entertainment District was not always a hot spot for nightlife. Where some of our finest restaurants sit along the river banks, Blacksmiths and Livery stations were the norm less than 100 years ago. Now we eat local ranch steaks and micro greens as we sit on beautifully landscaped patios, enjoying our view of tubers on the Yampa. More…

Fairview Neighborhood

Steamboat Springs is home to many charming neighborhoods. Fairview is located across the river from Steamboat Springs on the west side of Howelsen Hill.  Fairview consists of two additions: the Miller-Frazier Addition from the river to just across County Road 33, and the Fairview Addition on the hill platted in 1902. This area of town was developed by one of Steamboat Springs’ first lawyers, J. K. Bozard and his associates.  Watson’s Mercantile served the area, selling everything from food and cattle feed to coal.  The Farmer’s Elevator, built by local farmers to ship grain to outside markets in 1912 and remained in operation until 1979.

Brooklyn Neighborhood

Brooklyn is another mixed-use neighborhood right outside of Downtown Steamboat Springs with a very colorful past. Many years ago before Steamboat Springs was a city, deeds issued by The Steamboat Springs Town Company prohibited the making and sale of spirituous liquor making Steamboat Spring a “Dry Town”.   Because this did not sit too well with cowboys from local ranches, a small community developed on the south bank of the Yampa to accommodate those who wished to imbibe.  The area was dubbed Brooklyn by residents of Steamboat Springs who considered it the “red light district.” More…
