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 LakesJust 15 minutes from Leadville you’ll find the charming and historic village of Twin Lakes and its geological namesake, Colorado’s largest glacial lakes.
