Virtual Learning: Pike's Peak Gold Rush

Cultural History - Minimum age 10 with accompanying adult

Gold was discovered in 1858 near what would become downtown Denver. At that time, Native Americans lived in what would become Colorado; that would change quickly with a flood of fortune seekers into the area. In just 20 years, Colorado would become a state and the railroad came. Some folks became rich but most didn’t. Let’s explore this fascinating story.

I’m a Colorado native; I grew up in Golden and moved to Greeley to attend UNC. I earned my undergraduate and MA degrees in history. That led me to museums, where I’ve worked for over 20 years. As of December of 2010 I’m excited to have Boulder County Parks and Open Space as my workplace. There’s fun, constant learning, and variety in being the Cultural History Program Coordinator; I get to work with amazing and talented colleagues and volunteers as we share the history of the area.
