History

Be in Your Element: The Wild West

Experience the history of Leadville and Twin Lakes, Colorado!

Attend a performance at the historic Tabor Opera House. Explore museums, travel deep underground into a mine, hear miners’ stories on a customized tour, ride your bike or ski past old mines, or take a boat to an abandoned resort. Walk Victorian downtown Leadville, find World War II foundations at Camp Hale, feed the fish at the historic hatchery, follow a long-time rail route on the Leadville scenic train, and more.

Join us in April for Leadville History Month or any time throughout the year, and experience our rich mining heritage. For more history stories and attractions, download a Heritage Guide or pick up one at the Herald Democrat (717 Harrison Ave.), the Visitor Center (809 Harrison Ave.), or other town locations.
