Local History


The Colorado Mountain History Digital Collection is currently experiencing download issues with the City Directories. We are currently working on a solution to make them available online again. Please email if you have any questions or have a request of fewer than five city directories.

About the Leadville City Directories

The original set of Leadville City Directories were published for years 1879-1918 (no directories were printed in 1893 or 1896). The 1879 Leadville City Directory also lists the surrounding cities of Kokomo, Malta, and Carbonateville.

Use in Research

City Directories list residents in alphabetical order with residence and often place of employment. Business Directories are located at the end of each directory. A list of abbreviations can be found before the A's.
