Shaped by History
Victor Colorado aims to retain its Victorian character and authenticity, as well as its relaxed nature, quirky originality and connection to a storied past. After all, what other town decides its name by pulling one out of a hat? Or hits gold when digging a hotel foundation? Or, after burning to the ground, rebuilds a downtown serving 18,000 people in just six months? Victor Colorado’s mining and railroad heritage continues to influence it today, from its turn-of-the-century downtown to the mining equipment that dots the surrounding hillsides.
