In 1904, after the Denver Northwestern and Pacific railroad laid its tracks to Arrow, things really picked up in the area. Arrow was the first incorporated town in Grand County and in 1905 over 2000 people got their mail at the post office.
For part of its life, Arrow was a tourist town on the summer excursion runs out of Denver. A fine dining hall was built as well as other nicer amenities. One of the things Arrow was noted for was the presence of two electric street lights. At its peak the permanent population was 200 and all were proud to boast of their lighted street.
Arrow became a fair sized town but a fire destroyed most of it in 1920. Furthermore, when the Moffat Tunnel was constructed this high section of the railroad over Rollins Pass was no longer needed. The town soon fizzled and what was left was packed away or turned into fire wood
