  1. In the summer of 1973, Pam Foster and Betty and Bill Caswell as newly arrived members of the Grand Lake community and members of a Chamber of Commerce committee studying Grand Lake assets, felt the city’s historic background should be preserved. Subsequently the Grand Lake Area Historical Society was organized. Patience Kemp and Dorothy Howard conferred in Denver with the chairman of the State Historical Department on the procedure to be followed to make the society official. Deadlines were met and by the end of 1973 the Grand Lake Area Historical Society was official. http://grandlakehistory.org/ View full record

  9. In 1976 a group of citizens who recognized the historical significance and unique culture of Old Colorado City founded the Old Colorado City Historical Society.

  13. The San Juan County Historical Society (SJCHS) was established in 1964 as a Non-profit 501©(3) Colorado Corporation for preserving the history of San Juan County, Colorado. Our mining heritage has been the heart of San Juan County's development. Many service industries were instrumental in the success of the mining industry including the railroad for transportation of the ores, Otto Mears toll road system, the mining of precious metals (from numerous mines, the mills and smelters, boarding houses) and the support towns that followed the big strikes, which provided employment, supplies, housing, cultural opportunities, and entertainment. http://www.sanjuancountyhistoricalsociety.org/ View full record
