Rehabilitating the Tabor Opera House

The Tabor Opera House Preservation Foundation has begun planning for restoring and preserving the historic property. We exist to restore, rehabilitate, preserve and operate the historic Tabor Opera House for the benefit and enjoyment of the public.


Our National Treasure

The Tabor Opera House contributes to the Leadville National Historic Landmark District and is designated a National Treasure by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. In 2016, Colorado Preservation Inc named it an "Endangered Place."

Save the Tabor

Decades of deferred maintenance and neglect have left our Tabor Opera House, a National Trust for Historic Preservation-designated National Treasure, in a perilous state.

We need to work together to help SAVE THE TABOR.
