This local history museum has preserved and shared the history of eastern Colorado from its opening in 1991. The museum complex includes a main exhibit building, the historic Limon Depot, and a one-room schoolhouse. The museum was born from the response of local citizens to the destructive tornado of 1990 that led many citizens to support earlier efforts to conduct historic walking tours and train rides. In the aftermath of the tornado, local citizens supported the efforts of the museum founders and worked collectively to preserve artifacts that told the history of their resilient community.
