“Important Colorado history was made here”

Reviewed 11 December 2016 via mobile

Everyone interested in Colorado history or in the labor movement or in the current plight of Working Families should stop and experience this Memorial. At least twenty-three men, women, and children were massacred here. It is just a hundred yards or so off the interstate so there is no good excuse for not stopping here.

Doesn't stand out like it should, if you cross the railroad tracks, you have gone too far. Great memorial to a tragic time in Colorado history. The UMWA did a good job preserving this site.

I gave this a 3 rating as I felt it would be hard to find for those who don't live in the area. Needs more signs showing where it is as on I-25 a single sign says Ludlow Massacre and that is about it traveling on the interstate. Otherwise, I would have given a 4 rating. Very somber atmosphere, especially when viewing the cellar. Did an excellent job of repairing the monument after vandals maimed the statues.

Make sure not to use GPS mapping it will take you 20 miles away. It's just about 1-2 mile west of I25 sits on the right side. I enjoyed learning about the fights and struggles of tent life and the massacre that occurred. Old photos showed the way of life. Such a tragic story but laid the path for working conditions and fair wages.

After reading here we had to visit the site. Very interesting and sad to read what happened here. Very nice area and preserved. Drove to the little town or what is left. Too bad no one is preserving this history. Well worth the afternoon drive.
