Chamber’s Park Local History Museum
Operated by Eagle County Historical Society
100 Fairgrounds Road
Eagle, Colorado 81631
Artifacts displayed in our History Museum (which was once a local rancher’s barn) tell the story of Eagle County from the time the Utes roamed the country to the development of the county’s famous ski resorts in the 1960s and 1970s. Museum exhibits share the county’s rich history of mining, agriculture, and the development of its mountain communities. The museum complex includes the re-created Avon General Store, and a historic train caboose.
The photo gallery below presents a few of the artifacts from our collection, including an antique sewing and washing machines, toys, a rancher’s cowboy hat, church seats, and a linotype (used for printing the local newspaper).
