History

Be in Your Element: The Wild West

We can’t wait for you to experience the┬áhistory of Leadville and Twin Lakes, Colorado!

When our summer season starts, you can take a tour at the historic Tabor Opera House. Explore museums, peer deep into the Matchless Mine shaft, 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 and the historic village of Twin Lakes. 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.

For history stories and attractions, download a Heritage Guide or pick up one this summer at the Herald Democrat (717 Harrison Ave.), the Visitor Center (809 Harrison Ave.), or other town locations.
