From the Vault

Landscapes of Summit County, Colorado


From the Vault: Landscapes of Summit County is an exhibition showcasing pieces of our collection that have not previously been on display. For the online exhibition, these images are part of an ongoing digitization project. These landscape photographs offer the chance to reflect on the continuity and changes in Summit County. We encourage you to use these images to think about what the future of the landscape of Summit County might look like and perhaps what will always be consistent.

This online exhibition complements the physical exhibition on display in the 1883 Dillon Schoolhouse at 403 LaBonte Street, Dillon, Colorado. The photographs in the physical exhibition are on rotation.

The exhibition is open:
Friday and Saturday from 11:00-1:00 from April 21st – May 27th
Tuesday – Saturday from 11:00-1:00 from June 4th – July 8th.
