Every community has skeletons in their closet. 
We just bring ours out once a week for a good
old-fashioned airing out.  Robbers, reprobates and
the red light district are a few of the subjects of the
Hidden History Tour of downtown Glenwood Springs. 
Every Friday evening throughout the summer, let us
take you on a walking excursion which regales you
with tales of bank robberies, jail escapes, prohibition,
illegal gambling, gangsters, soiled doves and even a
murder or two!  You might think twice about bringing
young children, due to some of the subject matter.
