Attractions

The National Mining Hall of Fame

Located in the famous 1880's silver mining boomtown of Leadville, the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum is a monument to the memory of the men and women who pioneered the discovery, development and processing of our nation's natural resources.  719-486-1229, mininghalloffame.org

The story - in 1860 the Gold Rush attracted prospectors living in rough-and-tumble mining camps. Twenty years later, Leadville was a town of more than 30,000 residents with dozens of stores, hotels, boarding houses, dance halls, gambling houses, and saloons.

Among the most renowned of Leadville’s denizens were Horace and Augusta Tabor. Somewhat of a scoundrel, Horace left Augusta for a much younger “Baby Doe,” but he did build the famous Tabor Opera House. Molly Brown, of “Unsinkable” fame when the Titanic sank, was also made rich by Leadville.

Twin Lakes

Just 15 minutes from Leadville you’ll find the charming and historic village of Twin Lakes and its geological namesake, Colorado’s largest glacial lakes. The lake waters reflect soaring mountaintops and provide a splendid gateway for fishing, hiking, mountain climbing, biking in the warm weather months, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. Historical Twin Lakes was once a bustling hub that connected Aspen and Leadville during the Gold Rush of the 1800s, and the Red Rooster Tavern and Brothel now serves as the Twin Lakes Visitors Center. The famed Interlaken Hotel, favored by well-heeled 1880s travelers, is accessible by trail or boat.
