The Astor House was built way back in 1867. Until 45 years ago the stone building was a boarding house. It almost became a parking lot, but a vote saved it. The landmark is closed for a bit, but new fun is around the corner. Stay tuned and check the blog for updates.
What was it like for early ranchers and farmers in the area? Get a taste of tough pioneer life at Clear Creek History Park. View the old cabins, a flock of 20 chickens, the smithy’s shop, and a one-room school. It’s all just a block from downtown. And it’s always free to get in.
