Eagle County Historical Society is dedicated to the maintenance, publication and education regarding the local history of our county. This area has a rich history associated with all that makes the West "the West". Native American culture, mining, agriculture, ranching and recreation all have played important roles in our past.
We strive to preserve and record that history through our programs of education, publishing and maintenance of a local history museum.

Meet Maggie Tedesco, the new administrator for the Eagle County Historical Society.
 The ECHS has been experiencing some “growing pains” in recent years, prompting the Board of Directors to seek a part-time administrator to keep things running smoothly.

Maggie, a resident of Edwards, has over 17 years of experience in Telecom marketing, customer service, and administration. You may have seen her around the county where she has enjoyed the mix of outdoor activities and community events that characterize the Eagle Valley.

One of her first tasks is to recruit volunteer museum docents. Contact Maggie about that opportunity, or any other Historical Society business, at
