This series is held every Thursday at 7 pm beginning January 28th through April 15th. Sessions cover the exciting history of the Elk Mountains, Crested Butte, water, gold mining, the age of immigration, early days of skiing, narrow-gauge railroads, great nearby silver camps, coal mining, ranching, and polka music.
