In the 19th century, the telluride town boomed thanks to the metal mining industry. And as it is a small town in the end of a box canyon, it wasn?t too difficult for it to keep its small mountain town feel. It has even managed to maintain over 300 old buildings, creating the Telluride Historic District, making it worthy of a spot in the National Historic Landmarks list in 1961.

The Telluride Historic District spans up to 80 acres of downtown Telluride. Structures that are of Gothic and Victorian styles can be seen here. Architecture and history buffs can visit the town, although, it may not be on the way to anywhere. It?s nothing to worry about, though, as the town is known to be an all-season resort, having various activities all year long.
