Where history meets adventure.

At an elevation of 10,152 feet, Leadville is the highest incorporated city and the second highest incorporated municipality in the United States. A former gold and silver mining town that lies near the headwaters of the Arkansas River in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, the Leadville Historic District contains many historic structures and sites from its dynamic mining era. In the late 19th century, Leadville was the second most populous city in Colorado, after Denver. Today, Leadville is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and those looking for a more authentic mountain town experience.
