Colorado Historic Sites
has been called the Wild Wild West, Indian territory for several different
tribes, and a gold rush site to start with. The state is home to old
mining railroad spurs used for carrying ore over treacherous areas,
cliff dwellings for Indian protection, and old Army Forts representing
civilization's push westward. Each of these periods has left an indelible
mark both on the history of the region and on the history of the nation.
Many have donated their time and antiques to keep these stories alive
and have done so at several of the museums and sites we have listed
below. These sites offer a unique learning opportunity allowing one
to see and feel where it actually took place.
