Lucretia Vaile Museum

Lucretia Vaile Museum located in Palmer Lake CO

The Lucretia Vaile Museum began in the basement of the Palmer Lake Marshal’s Offices (originally the AT&SF Section Foreman’s house). The museum quickly outgrew that building, and the current Library-Museum was dedicated on October 4, 1981.

The building was erected as a memorial to Lucretia Vaile, who left a bequest to the town of Palmer Lake, which was used to build the original structure. With the new building came new museum pieces. An area furrier who was going out of business donated the glass display cases still used in the museum.

An addition was built in 1996 with money the Palmer Lake Historical Society received from the estate of Lena Royse, providing storage and administrative space. The Museum now contains permanent exhibits dedicated to the towns of Palmer Lake, and Monument as well as the surrounding area. The rich history of the Tri-Lakes is maintained as a legacy for those yet to come.
