THE COLLECTION OF DOCUMENTS AND ARTIFACTS THAT COMPRISE THE GENERAL RESOURCE IN THE ROYAL GORGE HISTORY CENTER WAS ORIGINALLY DONATED BY THE FREMONT/CUSTER HISTORICAL SOCIETY (NOW THE FREMONT COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY) IN EARLY 1993. THE HISTORY CENTER HAS SINCE EXPANDED INTO A VERY EXTENSIVE BASE OF DOCUMENTS NOW AVAILABLE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC FOR RESEARCH AND READING.
