Beanies, Stick Horses, Marbles & Mean Chickens Growing up in Burns, Colorado in the 1940s by Verne Albertson

Before Eagle County became known for its world-class ski resorts and high-end real estate, the county had a colorful history of nomadic Utes, adventurous mountain men, optimistic miners, and hard-working homesteaders. The Eagle County Historical Society works to preserve and share the county’s rich history. Knowing and understanding the people and forces that shaped the past makes us a better community today.
