Welcome to the Lake City National Historic District.  The well-preserved buildings in this district represent important periods in American history and the advance of the western frontier.

Whether you are a Lake City area resident or a visitor, there are several ways you can enjoy the Lake City National Historic District.

A Brief History of Lake City, Colorado will give you the context needed for a deeper understanding of the historic district and the buildings in it.  Included in it are numerous historic photographs from the first days of Lake City's settlement.

Who can resist a cabin in the mountains?  While visiting Lake City in person, consider staying at one of the historic tourist cabins that are still in operation.  Each one is a little piece of Lake City's unique tourism history.

You can also take a self-guided or virtual walking tour of the historic district.  Thirty-four sites with interpretive signs offer a fascinating glimpse into Lake City's past.

Another way to sample the district in person is to participate in the Historic Lake City Geocache Adventure, a high tech history hunt that takes you back to Lake City's boom town days.  This geocaching outing is a fun way for adults, kids, and family groups to experience historic Lake City.
