A Mountain Town With a Rich History

Central City, midway between Lead and Deadwood on U.S. Highway 14A, is a small town with a rich history and a stable future. Founded in January 1877, it’s one of the oldest communities in the Black Hills. Although it is centrally located, the town was named for the Colorado city of the same name. Within months, Central City bloomed into a town of 3,000 people with four lawyers, six doctors, five newspapers, a school, church and numerous mining and milling operations. As gold mining consolidated, Central City’s population declined. By the 2010 Census, there were 134 people, 66 households, and 37 families in Central City.
