Category: General Monthly Presentation: The Royal Gorge Wars


July 8, 2021

Please join us on Thursday, July 8, 2021 to learn all about the 1878-79 Royal Gorge War between the Denver & Rio Grande Railway and the Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe Railway.  Both lines wanted the rights to lay track to the mineral rich mines in Leadville, but it only one would fit through the narrow gorge.  We will be showing a video called “The Royal Gorge Wars” followed by a discussion after the video. Refreshments will be served at 6:45pm with the presentation beginning at 7:00pm at the Philip S. Miller Library 100 S. Wilcox St. Castle Rock, CO 80104. For more information check out our website at www.castlerockhistoricalsociety.org or contact the Castle Rock Museum at 303-814-3164, museum@castlerockhistoricalsociety.org
