  • History Colorado, the state’s historic fund, recently awarded the Hinsdale County Historical Society a $50,000 grant.

The organization already has $15,000 in pledges from a small group of local rail enthusiasts. But, the historical society still needs to raise an additional $25,000 to match the grant. As Laura Palmisano reports, the organization is nearly halfway to that goal. Learn more here.
