Extend Your Wildflower and Leadville Knowledge and Add-On the Healy House Museum Tour!

After the railroad wildflower tour, enjoy a catered box lunch  on the lawn at the Healy House Museum where you will also have time to enjoy a stroll through our heritage gardens. The gazebo frames the view of Colorado’s highest mountains, Mount Elbert and Mount Massive. The lawn is a good place to view Harrison Avenue and you can see why August Meyer chose the “capital hill” area for his home.
Following lunch there will be a private guided tour of both the Healy house Museum and James Dexter’s cabin.
