The Salida Museum will be hosting their annual Open House on May 12, 2018 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Melanie Roth, president of Historic St. Elmo & Chalk Creek Canyon, will be our featured speaker, talking about the St. Elmo mining district and some of the preservation work they have been doing. St. Elmo and the mines were such an important component in Chaffee County and Salida’s economy. We'll let you know once we've set the time for Melanie's talk.
Along with the talk, you’ll have a chance to look through our new explorer, mining and railroad exhibits, and other updates throughout the museum. Wallace Ewing will be signing his book "Focus on Salida", a historical and photographic tour of Salida. Come meet Wallace and get a copy of this great little book by Wallace and Jim Barnett.
As usual, the Open House is free! And we’ll have cookies for the kids (and adults, too).
