About Glenwood Springs Historical Society

Visit us! We have a main museum downtown on Colorado Avenue, a satellite Doc Holliday collection in the former Glenwood Hotel at 8th Street and Grand Avenue, and our wildly popular annual Ghost Walk at Linwood Cemetery—where Doc Holliday is laid to rest—that takes place weekends in October.

Your Support Matters

From early childhood education and Linwood Cemetery cleanup to archive digitization and building repair, your support goes a long way in helping to preserve our common history. 



Thank you for your commitment to the community of Glenwood Springs. It's people like you that keep our history alive and well!


Would you like to display historical imagery from around town in your office or home? Or are you thinking about giving the gift of an old, nostalgic photograph to someone special? Browse our gallery and let us know how we can help!

How You Can Help

Our shared time past is bound by the work we do. If you believe in the conservation of historic knowledge, help us continue these necessary duties by donating today.

"Those who don't know history are are destined to repeat it."   ~Edmund Burke

Life in 2020 initiative

With local information on the Spanish Flu of 1918 being scarce, we're hoping to create a record of what life for locals  has been like during the Covid-19 pandemic. Please share photos, letters and/or a paragraph of your experience with us for our collection.



Searching for particular information?

Contact our archivist for assistance.




Interested in bringing a group by for a tour of the museum? Let's set up a date!
