I, Zeb the Duck, Soapy Smith Duck and little Pumpkin Duck, traveled about 90 miles east of Denver to Limon, Colorado.
We visited a nice museum. The Heritage Museum is really two museums in one.
The museum is open only during the summer, from Memorial Day to Labor Day. We were there this fall, so it was closed, but still interesting. Many outside exhibits seemed permanent.
We started at the Limon Heritage Museum where we found old farm equipment. Limon’s local history includes farms and ranches, Native American Indians and the railroad. These tractors show changes over the years.
We liked this garden cultivator,
powered by human energy.
Walking along the farm and ranch equipment, within a couple blocks we are at the Limon Depot Museum.
This was a real train depot. Here is the car that rides the train rails,
often used by employees. This train has the snowplow.
or sleeper car, is probably open in the summer. This picnic or rest area would be great on a warm day. We liked sitting here.
If you are in or near Limon, stop here to relax and enjoy this museum. Near the museum we saw this mural.
Limon’s history is portrayed here, including farming, Native American Indians and the railroad. Limon is at the junction of US 40 and I-70. Limon is a nice place for a stop of a few hours or a few days. We liked our visit.
