Take a Historic Walking Tour
Lake City, CO has an amazing number of historic structures still in tact (so many mining towns were wiped out by fire). You can sign up for an escorted tour of the Historical District at the Hinsdale County Museum (in the summer), or you can do a self tour... on foot.
We are very proud of our history plaques positioned directly in front of these nineteen century homes, businesses, barns, etc. The history includes photos and the history of that stucture from the late 1870's right up to the 1950's.
One of the owners of this sweet little house later became the editor of the Denver Post....and Susan B. Anthony slept here when she came to this county trying to get the vote for women.
