The downtown core of Telluride was designated a National Historic Landmark District in 1964. This honor has translated into a beautifully preserved Main Street and surrounding streets where Victorian homes, mining shacks and clapboard storefronts set the stage for a bustling shopping and dining district.

Telluride is 12 blocks long by 8 blocks wide, perfect for a walking tour. Whether your passion is for architectural details, native flower gardens or the colorful stories behind the buildings, a historic walking tour is the perfect way to explore Telluride's rich heritage. Every history lesson is best started at the Telluride Historical Museum, an intimate and intrepretative environment that offers far more than artifacts under glass. The museum's mission is to preserve and promote the rich and colorful history of the region. Located just off Main Street, hit the museum first and jump start your tour de history.
