Hinsdale County Historical Society campaigns to restore Lake City's last railcar

History Colorado, the state’s historic fund, recently awarded the Hinsdale County Historical Society a $50,000 grant. The money will help in the restoration of a rail car that once transported people and goods to and from the town of Lake City. However, the grant requires matching funds. The organization already has $15,000 in pledges from a small group of local rail enthusiasts. But, the historical society still needs to raise an additional $25,000 to match the grant. As Laura Palmisano reports, the organization is nearly halfway to that goal. Learn more here.
