Pages from the past back in Glenwood

A major collection of more than 115 years worth of Glenwood Springs’ and greater Garfield County’s history has come home.

Bound volumes of several different newspapers that have served the community are now being stored at the new Glenwood Springs Branch Library at Eighth and Cooper, and are available for limited on-site viewing.

They include the Glenwood Post starting in 1899; the Glenwood Independent, which published from 1998-2000; and their merged successor, the Post Independent. The collection also includes the somewhat-tattered but now better-preserved pages of The Avalanche, which published during the late 1800s.

Learn more in the Post Independent.
