Leadville Historic District

Designated a Historic Landmark District in 1966, Leadville is one of Colorado’s largest historic districts. With a wide variety of historic sites, a visitor can stop anywhere from the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum to the Annunciation Church, started in 1879. Make sure to stop by the Tabor Residence, the one time home to the Tabor family, one of Leadville’s most influential couples.

We hope you enjoy our work.
