About this session

During 2020, the National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum and the Tabor Opera House Preservation Foundation both undertook historic preservation projects associated with Horace Tabor and his two wives, Augusta and Elizabeth "Baby Doe," in Lake County. Such projects can be expensive and complicated and need to be flexible enough to deal with unexpected developments.

Learn how these two organizations in a small, economically-challenged county promoted tourism, developed partnerships, funded significant preservation work, educated the public about the importance of preserving the past, and persevered despite hidden problems and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
