Grand Lake was formed by glacial action, the ice gouged back into the mountains to the east. As the climate warmed, the glacier melted irregularly, leaving ridges of clay and rocks called moraines. Moraines edge the west and north shore, and are also found within the lake and farther back into town.
Since the area's early use as a summer ground by Native Americans, Grand Lake has been a tourist destination, enjoyed for its stunning beauty, recreational potential, & casual, therapeutic ambience.
The Grand Lake Area Historical Society has developed a walking tour highlighting some of the historic buildings in our community. Walking tour brochures are available at the Kauffman House Museum and at the Information Center at the entrance to Grand Lake Village.
Grand Lake Area Historical SocietyPartial funding provided by a State Historic Fund grant from the Colorado Historical Society
