Walden, CO Museum

A small museum honoring the early residents of the North Park region (Jackson County) Colorado. These donated firearms were used to put food on the table and shoot varmints. Probably have little monetary value, being well used, but I appreciated them for being well used tools.

My maternal grandmother was a Latham, one of the early settlers. Many relatives are buried in the Southeast corner of the Walden Cemetery.  

Nearly every small city has a museum. If you have the time, you can see real tools used by real people.

A few pictures from the far South end of the park.
