Overview

Most people view Boulder as a mountain playground, or as a cozy tourist destination. But Boulder's true heritage lies in mining. Driving through the area you cannot help but notice mining's manifestations on the surrounding landscape. The Lafayette Miners Museum celebrates the mining tradition in a restored coal mining cabin. Dating back to the 1890s, the six room cabin, run by the Louisville Historical Society, features period clothing and furniture, along with various mining tools of the day.
