When I think of Leadville, Colorado, the first thing that comes to my mind is the story of Horace and Augusta Tabor and Horace's ill-fated love interest in Elizabeth "Baby" Doe, all brought to stage in Douglas Moore's outstanding American opera The Ballad of Baby Doe. More about that elsewhere on my Leadville page!
We came into Leadville on a day trip while staying in a mountain cabin near Salida, Colorado. Most will come here from places like Vail. Leadville, another of Colorado's 19th century mining boom-towns, has a number of interesting things to see and do.
The buildings shown are within the Leadville National Historic District.
- In a nutshell:Colorful history in a mountainous setting.
This photo of Leadville was taken from the road leading back into town from the Matchless Mine. It's rugged country. more travel advice
