CC&V Mine Tours

Tour a Real Gold Mine from the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum


Experience mining old and new this summer and explore gold rush history past and present at the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. The Museum, which is has operated in its current location for over 50 years, has been open weekends starting April and will open on a daily basis Saturday, May 27 at 9:30 a.m. The museum will again be hosting tours of the Newmont Mining Corporation’s Cripple Creek & Victor operations near Victor.

 

Modern mine tours will start May 28 leaving from the Museum.  Tour experiences will offer the chance to see giant haul trucks, shovels and drill rigs in action in the large surface mine between Victor and Cripple Creek, Colorado. Watch boulders being crushed into gravel and learn about the modern refining methods while helping to preserve the district’s 1890’s history - all tour proceeds go to the Museum to help offset operations and building renovation costs.

 

This summer the mine tours will be available May 28 through Sept. 4 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., daily except no tours will be held on Thursdays. In addition, tours are offered Sept. 9 and 10 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Check VictorColorado.com for additional tour times and dates during July weekends. The cost is $8.50 per person - an affordable way for the entire family to see a real working gold mine. Only children 5 years of age and older are allowed on the tours. Please be sure to reserve your tour dates (June is the slowest and the best time to make a reservation) as they are very popular and fill up quickly.

Lowell Thomas Book Signing

The Victor Lowell Thomas Museum will honor Victor’s own home town hero – Lowell Thomas during a special event Saturday, Sept. 2 during Victor Celebrates the Arts. The newest and first biography of Lowell Thomas will be for sale and New York author and journalism professor Mitchell Stephens will be on hand to sign books and give a presentation about Thomas.

 

The book outlines Thomas’s life from his boyhood times in Victor in the 1890s to his career as a noted television and radio broadcaster. Stephens will present a brief history of the noted journalist at 2 p.m. at the museum and then sign books for those interested in purchasing the publication. The purchase of a book will include admission to the museum to view the Lowell Thomas exhibit.

 

Stephens is a professor of journalism at Carter Institute at New York University and has written about journalism for several major publications and has authored five books. He visited Victor and Cripple Creek to gather information for the Lowell Thomas book.


At the age of eight in 1900 Thomas moved to Victor with his family where he got his start in journalism - as editor of the Victor Daily Record. At the age of 10, dreams of becoming a newsboy began to circulate in his head and late that summer he joined the newsboy’s union - one of 35 members.


Hired on to work at the Victor Daily Record by owner George Kyner, Thomas folded and delivered the morning paper to the business and red light districts of Victor and Goldfield. In addition, Thomas took up delivering during the early morning hours the Denver Post to saloons and gambling houses, and made it to school in time each morning. Later, in 1911, Kyner hired him as the editor of the Victor Daily Record for $95 per month. Like many small town newspapers of the day, being editor meant being the one-and-only-man show at the paper. He covered prize fights, brawls, shootings and operas. With promise of more pay, Thomas switched jobs in 1912 and took over editorship of the Victor News and, after leaving for law school, was hired as a reporter for The Chicago Evening Journal.


In the mining district, he lived through the labor strikes, the tensions mounting over unions and non-union miners; and through the boom times in Victor when mines were producing millions of dollars of gold a year. He climbed Pikes Peak before age 14 and in 1916, he left Victor to attend college (in two years he had a Bachelor of Science and Master of Arts degree.)  At age 24 he was a student and professor at Princeton, by then already well-traveled In March of 1925 he spoke for the first time on radio and Thomas later became one of the first television news broadcasters.


In 1976 President Gerald Ford presented Thomas with the Medal of Freedom and on April 30, 1976, Thomas told the world, from Victor, that he would retire from broadcasting on May 14 of that year.


His last visit to his boyhood home of Victor was in August 1981. Less than two weeks later at the age of 89, he died at his estate in New York. Thomas left a legacy for all journalists and that legacy along with a long list of adventures across the globe is the focus of new book.

 
His first work place as a journalist, The Victor Record building, still stands on south Fourth St. The Lowell Thomas Museum houses memorabilia from his illustrious career.

 

Funds from the sale of this book as well as other gift shop purchases go toward the museum’s building renovation fund.

Victor Burro Race

Victor Colorado Packing Fun With September Burro Race

 

Experience a day of fast and furious (sometimes furry) racing that must be seen to be believed. Load up the kids of all ages and come to historic Victor Saturday, Sept. 9 for a day of four- and two-footed races – a day packed with old-time fun.

 

The annual Victor Pack Burro race will kick off at Noon in downtown with racers from across the region competing for cash prizes and a silver coin. The furry four-footeds are historically dubbed the Rocky Mountain Canary for their role in underground mining; the burros were used above ground during the gold rush era for hauling heavy loads, but also underground in the mines for the same tasks.

 

Today the burros are beloved symbols of days gone by and are, along with their trainers and human counterparts, the centerpiece of this event.

 

After the race, hang out in the new Pinnacle Park downtown plaza and check out the participating asses and meet their humans. All racing burros will be entered into a Nicest Ass Contest with prizes awarded.

 

The Victor Elks will serve cold ones at a beer garden and visitors can get a chance to meet the racers and their burros.

 

Proceeds from the burro race entries benefit the Southern Teller County Focus Group, a non-profit that maintains the Trails of Gold and assists with historic preservation and mining education. Proceeds from the beer garden go to the Victor Elks.

 

The Gold Belt Byway will host the Vindicator – Independence Twilight 5K run that same evening. The race starts in downtown Victor and uses the Trails of Gold as the course. Proceeds benefit the non-profit Gold Belt Byway Association, which promotes open space and a healthy natural environment, historic awareness and cultural features along the byway that includes historic mining and ranching routes from Canon City to Victor and Florence.

 

Both races will begin and end in downtown so you can spend the day and evening surrounded by the historic buildings from the gold rush era. During the day while racers are running trails you can look for unique treasures in Victor’s shops, eat and drink at four local establishments, pan for gold at the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum, check out the old-time tractor display at the Ag & Mining Museum, or hike to the top of Battle Mountain for a super view of the area from the Ajax Mine.
