The Caledonia Boarding House at Minnie Gulch

The San Juan County Historical Society has helped to preserve several historical sites in the San Juan County area since 1964. If you’re in Silverton, be sure to visit these sites, which include the Mining Heritage Center, the 1902 Jail, the Old Hundred Boarding House and more historical gems. The SJCHS continues its mission to preserve these sites and is supported by a variety of Colorado and national historical organizations, private foundations and visitors. For information, visit
