“In the highest incorporated city in the United States there is little separation between you and the spirit world.”
Join Judge Reynolds on a brisk October evening for this one-of-a-kind historical jaunt through an even more historical cemetery. Judge Reynolds family has lived in Leadville for over 145 years, making the Judge the most knowledgeable gentleman when it comes to Leadville folks: living or dead!
The judge’s Saturday tours are sold out, but there’s still room on tonight’s (Oct. 25) tour at 8 p.m. The cost of the tour is $10 per person. The proceeds benefit the chamber and they will be serving hot cider and cookies to get everyone warmed up before the tour. Wear sensible shoes, dress warm, bring a flashlight.
Reservations are required. Call 719-486-3900, stop by the Visitors Center at 809 Harrison Ave. or email the chamber at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot before this tour sells out.
