Metal Mining and Tourist Era Resources of Boulder County

The Boulder County Metal Mining Multiple Property nomination is a collection of districts and buildings that illustrate the communities associated with the metal mining industry in the mountain region of Boulder County from 1858 to 1910. 

The buildings in this submission are pioneer log, simple wood-frame, or simple Victorian in style.  Between 1900 and 1935, several of these communities evolved into early tourist destinations.
