The original settlement of Slaghts was a stage stop on the Denver-Leadville Stage Line during the 1860s.  After the Post Office and Shawnee Lodge were built, the area became known as Shawnee. Served by the C&S Railroad, in 1920 the Shawnee Lodge was designed after famous hotels of the Adirondacks. With several contributing properties, Shawnee is now recognized on the National Register of Historic Places.
