A Taste of Frontier Life

One of the prime attractions of Cedaredge is Pioneer Town, located just two blocks south of downtown Cedaredge. Visitors can travel back 100 or more years in time at the special attraction, operated by the Surface Creek Valley Historical Society. When you visit Pioneer Town, you get a taste of frontier life during the past century in quaint Cedaredge, Colorado. As you walk along the wooden sidewalks of Pioneer Town's Main Street, you can visit the Coalby General Store, the print shop, the saloon, the States mining museum, the Girling Mercantile, the bank, the marshal's office, the jail house, the Wells Fargo office, and the barber shop which also doubled as a dental office.

But there's more than Main Street in our 5 1/2 acre village. Save some time for the working blacksmith shop, Sand Creek School House, homesteader's log cabin, Sutherland Indian Museum, Doris Doll and Toy House, famous Bar-I Silos, Austin Railroad Depot, and the award-winning Chapel of the Cross.

Pioneer Town is open to the public from Memorial Day weekend through Color Sunday in late September. Hours for the 2010 Season are 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. Special tours for groups are available year around by appointment. Enter through the Grand Mesa National Scenic Byway Welcome Center.
