South Park City is a remarkable recreation of early high country mining towns, preserving the history of our nation’s frontier while educating and entertaining the present. Located in Fairplay, Colorado, the museum represents a mining town between 1860 and 1900. Thirty-four authentic buildings filled with over 60,000 artifacts portray many of the economic and social aspects of boomtown life. Seven of the buildings are on their original sites; the others have been moved from abandoned camps and ghost towns in South Park. The buildings contain period room settings and exhibits illustrating the professions, trades, and industries that contributed to life in a nineteenth century Colorado mining town.
