Overview

Grasso ParkThe Town of Superior partners with the Historical Commission to preserve and protect the historical treasures in our community.  The group is compromised of volunteers who live in or once lived in Superior or surrounding communities.

Superior Historical Museum

The Superior Historical Museum opened its doors to the public in February of 2010.  The Historical Commission along with the Town of Superior spent nearly four years to rehabilitate the home that once stood during the 1920s and 1930s in the Industrial Mine Camp, on the hillside just south of Original Town. 

Commission volunteers staff the Superior Historical Museum on the first Saturday of each month from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.  The Museum is located in Asti Park, 110 Maple Street in Original Town (near the intersection of 2nd Avenue and Maple Street).

Museum

During the monthly opening visitors can walk through the Museum's four rooms and see what a house from the 1930s would look like.  Copies of "Lost Superior Remembering the Architectural Heritage of a Colorado Mining Town" are available for sale for $10. The Commission welcomes those of you with young children to print a copy of the Living in Superior, Colorado coloring book for free!

An in depth look at the history of the Town can be found by viewing past issues of the Superior Historian, a once quarterly publication produced by members of the Historical Commission, and information about the Town of Superior historic Cemetery.
