The Animas Museum

The Animas Museum is owned and operated by the La Plata County Historical Society, whose directors and staff have transformed the 1904 Animas City School building into a charming local history museum.


The mission of the La Plata County Historical Society is to keep La Plata County history and culture alive for present and future generations.

  • We provide a welcoming space to support and give voice to the region's diverse cultural perspectives.
  • Our collections stewardship makes available community resources to inspire engagement and understanding.
  • We promote historic preservation by fostering an appreciation of history, the built environment and landscape.
