Colorado Heritage, History, and Historic Preservation
Colorado's rich history and heritage is alive and well, from the preserved forts and historic sites of the various Indian wars and battles to the mining towns and silver & gold mines of the Rockies, the historic trade and railroad centers of the cities on the plains, our many historic cemeteries, and the routes of the narrow-gauge railroads criss-crossing the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
Local towns & communities celebrate their heritage with festivals and preservation projects to keep their local history alive. The mountains are filled with ghost towns, old gold mines, mining communities, narrow-gauge railroad routes and artifacts, army forts, and historic sites of all kinds. The high plains to the east boast towns that played a part in settling the West, with many more army forts and sites of Indian battles and encampments.
