Upcoming Events

 2019 Guided Tours & Special Events

During the summer, special events and guided tours are held to 
educate the public on the history of Lake City and Hinsdale County
and provide an enjoyable experience for all!

We were planning on opening our Museum on Memorial Day weekend. Unfortunately, due to the spring flood threat, we spent the Memorial Day weekend with local and state volunteers moving our museum collection to higher ground.  We regret that we will not be able to open our Museum for the 2019 summer season. We will try and hold as many of the special events and guided tours as possible.

Please note: Times, dates and events subject to change.
