This Self-Guided Heritage Tour was developed as part of a series by the Fremont County Heritage Commission and Fremont County Tourism Council, with support of a grant from the Colorado Tourism Office, for free distribution to convey the County’s rich history and encourage heritage tourism. The Fremont County Historical Society, a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization, is also a partner in this effort.
