A walk through Old Town is a walk through history — Burlington and Kit Carson County history the way it was in the, well, old days.
This spacious museum is set on six and a half acres and is a wonderful gateway to the past. Travelers can see it from I-70 and often make a stop to take in the popular attraction.
The walking tour through the complex includes 21 fully restored buildings that contain some 25,000 artifacts.
A touching tribute to local veterans past and present awaits you as do special interactive exhibits for the children that offer unique opportunities to learn about early pioneer life on the plains of Colorado.
Bring the kids during the fall and enjoy Old Town Ghost Town, where the young are treated to trick-or-treating up and down the streets of Old Town. Or, if you’re a bit more daring, enter the barn, which has been turned into a haunted barn for a scarily delightful time.
Winter brings on Winter Wonderlights, a beautiful time to enjoy Old Town as the streets are lit up with thousands upon thousands of Christmas lights, as well as fun activities for the kids.
Summer brings Old Town to life. Memorial Day through Labor Day you can experience the “High Noon” can-can shows, live gunfights in the saloon (Saturdays) and enjoy an ice-cream treat inside the Emporium.
