Stunning natural surroundings and unique Victorian charm give Telluride its special character. These buildings stand as eyewitnesses to a mining boom town gone bust, and its rebirth as a ski destination. Imagine the stories they can tell!
In 1961, Telluride was officially designated a National Historic Landmark District in special recognition of the historic mining character of the town. Thanks to historic preservation efforts, much of the town’s original architecture endures and 21st century Telluride remains a recognizable, historic mining town.
That landmark status defines and shapes how people live in and visit our unique town. Maintaining this historic mining identity is an intensely passionate process; a balancing act between development and preservation.
