Leadville Boom Days |
Leadville is the highest incorporated city in the country, as well as being the frontier's wildest and richest silver mining boom town. The town was home to Doc Holliday, "Unsinkable" Molly Brown, and many other well-known historic figures.
Today, Leadville is designated as a National Historic Landmark District, featuring 70 square blocks of Victorian architecture and twenty square miles of mining history.
The town's real wealth may be its authentic historic attractions, such as the only two remaining Tabor structures in the state, -- the Tabor Opera House and the recently renovated Tabor Grand Hotel.
Leadville is an excellent base from which to explore the state, with plentiful nearby recreation in the surrounding mountains and lakes. The Colorado Trail provides convenient access to miles of hiking and biking trails; the route traverses Lake County and many of the country's best rafting rivers have their headwaters in this area.
