Community Highlights: Pioneer Town
Have you ever visited the Pioneer Town Museum in Cedaredge? Step on to this 5-acre property with 24 buildings and travel back in time to the late 1800s/early 1900s. This museum, created by the Surface Creek Valley Historical Society, offers an interactive and deeply researched journey into life as it was in northern Delta County at the turn of the 19th century.
An Arboretum introduces visitors to native trees. Multiple structures, including grain silos, packing shed, general store and wood cabin are on the National Register of Historic Places. You could even get married at the quaint Chapel of the Cross! The museum is also a Scenic Byways Welcome Center. The Grand Mesa Scenic Byway travels right by the Museum so it’s a natural fit to also display history related to the Grand Mesa, just a few miles to the north.
This museum is only open seasonally, from Memorial Day to the beginning of October, so now is the time to check it out. Visit www.pioneertown.org for more information!
