The first known residents of the Carbondale area were Ute Indians. By 1881, early white settlers started cattle and sheep ranches and began growing potatoes; which, for over 50 years, was the mainstay crop of the Carbondale economy. The town was incorporated on April 26, 1888, and was named in honor of Carbondale, Pennsylvania, the original home of some of the early settlers.
