Freshly renovated space. Lovely colors and light. Welcoming host that shared stories, history and perspective. Right across the street from an equally charming Episcopal church. And the mountain views....

This is certainly worth a visit, but I urge you to take some time to read the extensive website first to make the most of your visit and have an idea of what you will or will not see: www.jewishleadville.org This is an interesting side trip (for adults) while in Leadville. Do not bring food, drink, or pets with you.... More
