Tribal Paths Online Exhibit
This online exhibit looks at major events in the history of American Indians in Colorado over the past five centuries—trade networks; encounters with newcomers; the removal of tribes to reservations; the children’s experience with boarding schools; and the American Indian civil rights movement.
History Take Out
Moving Day: Colorado Culture. Using objects, photos, and a large walk-on map of the state, students will learn about different cultural groups from Colorado history including the Ute, miners, ancestral Puebloans, and mountain men.
Western Work: Colorado Industries of the Past. Students will engage with some objects and become "entrepreneurs" in some of Colorado's most important industries. Western Work meets economic, history and geography standards and encourages students to explore natural, capital, and human resources through a historical lens.

The Baca-Bloom Heritage Gardens offer a beautiful setting for any event. Gardens, lawns, and a quaint apple orchard create an oasis around the Bloom Mansion, an ornate Victorian home built in 1882.
