On August 26, the Salida Museum will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the smelter smokestack. It remains one of the most visible symbols of Salida’s colorful history. The celebration will feature talks about the smokestack (under the large tent), a drone exhibition by the Salida High School UAS class and a hands on display of minerals and mining artifacts. And like any good celebration, we’ll be cutting the cake, so plan to join us at the Smokestack on the 26th!
To get to the smokestack – from Hwy 291 one mile north of Salida, turn left on to CR 151. Travel 3/10 of a mile turn right on CR 152.
