Oral Histories:
The Oral History Interview with Fred Parlin can be found on our website. On April 17, 2013, we interviewed Fred about growing up and living in Leadville, his time on the City Council and as mayor, and the years he put in with the water department. He passed away May 11, 2013. We feel so fortunate that we were able to capture and preserve his history for his family as well as for the community.

If you know anyone that would be willing to share their Leadville history with us, or if you have comments, questions, or concerns, please contact Janice Fox or Holly Henning at 719-486-0569 or by email at
