Telluride, Colorado is the largest city as well as the county seat of San Miguel County. It was established as a silver mining camp along the San Miguel River and was originally incorporated as the Town of Columbia in 1887. It was changed to avoid confusion with Columbia, California, which was also a mining town. It was renamed Telluride after natural tellurides, compounds which include gold and silver.
