Trail began after the discovery of gold and ore in the neighboring Red Mountain, in the Rossland region by Joe Moris and Joe Bourgeois. It was at this time, Eugene Sayre Topping and his friend Frank Hanna purchased 343 acres and laid out the plans for a town to be developed. This plan was the beginning of the township Trail and on the outskirts of Trail they built a smelt for processing the ore. The township sites were being bought up and businesses built as the success of mining in Rossland continued. The Town of Trail was incorporated as in 1901.
Many of the historical artifacts that helped to pioneer the great days of the Gold Rush are held in the Trail Museum.
