The ECHS Museum is closed for the season
Votefor the Eagle County Historical Society's artifact for "Colorado's Most Significant Artifact" recognition.
Among the many wonderful artifacts the ECHS has acquired in recent years is a July 3, 1893 copy of the Fulford Signal newspaper announcing a huge gold strike in the Eagle County mining camp. The original document is archived with our partner,
the Eagle Valley Library District, and has been nominated as a contender for
"Colorado's 2016 Most Significant Artifacts."
We certainly think it is a significant artifact. Help us win recognition for local preservation efforts by clicking the following link:
