Founded in 1838, and at one time the western terminus for the Union Pacific Railroad, Kit Carson's location has made it a commercial trade center. With wide tracts of prairie grassland and more than 400 active oil and gas wells, farming, cattle ranching and the production of oil are the area's chief industries. The town was burned to the ground three times.
