Virtual Tour of the Railroad
If you have a railroad enthusiast on your gift list, you’ll want to pick up the DVD virtual tour of the Buena Vista Model Railroad. This narrated history of local railroads begins in 1900s Leadville and works down the Arkansas Valley to the Royal Gorge. Along the way are told the stories of the area mines, smelters, ranches, rail yards and downtown businesses.
The DVDs are just $16.00, including tax, and are available online (add $3.50 for shipping) or at the museum.
Depot Bricks for Sale
You can own a piece of local history! During the first phase of restoration on the Denver, Leadville and Gunnison Depot, the mason determined that the bricks from the original chimneys were not strong enough to retain for the future. So we have bricks to sell to railroad enthusiasts, history buffs and anyone else who'd like a piece of this cherished building for their own.
The price is just $19.95 each plus tax and shipping and handling. If you live locally, you can pick one up at the Heritage Museum and save yourself $14 in shipping and handling.
