The History of Mining in Jefferson County

Dec 16, 2018 - Mar 31, 2019


With accompanying educational programs each month, this exhibit will share the stories, trials, and tragedies of mining life. Though gold may have brought many miners to our county, it's not why they stayed.

Discover how coal, clay, uranium, and more changed the face of our county.

Children's activities will be available!

Open Sundays 11am - 3pm from December 16 - March 31, or by appointment. 

To schedule an appointment outside of regular exhibit hours, please call (303) 396-5975 or email

This exhibit made possible through a grant from Community First Foundation.
