Enjoy the Historic Mining Town
You never know just what you’ll find as you roam the streets of Central City. On Saturday afternoons from late-June to mid-August you just might catch an Old West Show & Shootout on Main Street!
Central City cemeteries are fascinating historic sites, with many tombstones dating from the 1860’s, set among beautiful wildflowers and aspen groves. To reach several of the town cemeteries, drive up Eureka Street about one mile past the Opera House.
Reliving The Past Studio
At Reliving The Past Studio, you will experience being transformed into an old western gunslinger or saloon girl, a miner in search of their fortune in gold or even into an old Victorian Era family relative from an old photograph. The studio is state of the art in having a choice of multiple scenes to choose from starting with a hand painted canvas back drop, an old western style bar, a Victorian style living room with fireplace scene, a wrought iron bed scene and finally a full 9’ x 12’ rear projection screen system that allows the imagination to run wild with a mountain, lake, river, cabin, or even an old mining scene…the possibilities are almost endless! With a variety of costumes to choose from, you can transform yourself into any character from the past. Not only do they have costumes for the adults, but they cater to the little people as well so they can experience the adventure of going back in time.
