Take a Walk on the artsy side

Rossland Museum walking tours

Have you taken our Historic Downtown Walking Tour yet?

Our one-hour walking tour highlights the history and architecture of Rossland’s gold mining era. You will see how both fire and prosperity have shaped our little mountain town. By 1898 Rossland had 40 hotels, 5 churches, 4 breweries, 3 banks, and a hospital. Many of these buildings and their stories survive to this day.

Learn about Rossland’s many heritage buildings. Find out which buildings were lost or damaged by one (or more) of our three major fires. And end your tour in front of the historic Miner’s Hall just in time for the Gold Fever Follies matinee show.

Meet at the Harry Lafevre Square (out front of Ferraro Foods) at 1:45 p.m. — tours end at the Miner’s Hall at 2:45 p.m., just in time to catch the Gold Fever Follies 3 p.m. matinee performance!
